Vocational Elder / Pastor
My parents became Christians when I was very young, and they faithfully taught me the Gospel as I grew up. I’m not sure exactly when I was converted, but God was working on me. Definitely by my senior year in high school I was seeking the Lord and praying about how He would use me in the future. During my freshman year at Wheaton College, I felt very clearly that God was calling me into vocational ministry. Stacy and I were married in 1999, and we spent two years at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, where I was an apprentice. We then went to Southern Seminary in Louisville for my M.Div. and Ph.D. I served a church in Elizabethtown, KY for 3 years as Minister of Students, and then came to 3RG in 2006 as a vocational elder. We now have 3 kids and a 4th on the way!
