I am living proof that God has a tremendous sense of humor! I felt the call from Him for ministry when I was 19 years old but ran. From college, I had plans and dreams to excel in the corporate world, but the Lord kept tugging at my heart to be used for His work and glory. Every time I would run from His call over the years, He did not give up on me….I am sure sometimes laughing at my stubbornness!

As the College and Career Pastor at Toonigh COG, I am blessed to develop, encourage & pray with our young folks and guide them through some of the most critical decision making years of their lives! I was once where they are and am very humbled by the Lord’s call on my life to make a difference in their lives.

 I am blessed to ‘do’ life with my high school sweetheart, Trina. We have been married for over 28 years and she is a true ‘prayer warrior’. The Lord has blessed us with an amazing family; an incredible daughter, Chelsea, an awesome son-in-law, Zack and a talented son, Paul. The Lord has a great plan for their lives, too!

I enjoy hanging out with my wife, traveling to see the amazing people and places the Lord has created around the world, running, playing golf and listening to music.

I’ve done some crazy things in my life, like skydiving and zip-lining on the longest cable in the world. The Lord has watched over me and I am sure, continues to laugh at me!

Life scripture: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
