"Having grown up in church yet missing Jesus until in my early teens, I want everyone to know Jesus in real and personal ways. My desire is for Bel-Ridge to be the church outside the walls making a difference in the community. On the personal front, I enjoy being with my wife and daughters: Angela, Lauren and Hannah. We enjoy camping, kayaking, and hiking (and other outdoor activities). And in our home, almost any and everything can and will be turned into a fierce competition! I also enjoy plucking on my guitar, building models and coveting old cars."

student, worship and missions pastor

"My heart is to see the body of Christ actively engaged in discipleship processes that lead people into ever deepening relationships with Jesus. I am passionate about missions across the globe. I am blessed to partner with outstanding church members to build relationships with young people in our community, to lead the music ministries of the church, and to engage people for Christ. My wife Robin is an amazing co-laborer in Christ, and we have three amazing children: Caylah, Noah and Lily. I enjoy volunteering in a mentoring program in our local elementary school, coaching and playing music."
