“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” ~ Abraham Lincoln


After four years of being in student ministry and two years of being a youth pastor, I want to continue to do the Lord's work as a youth/student minister. I am looking for the opportunity to relocate and do ministry full time.

More About Me

My wife and I both have a strong passion for student ministry and developing them to become fully devoted disciples, supplying them with the knowledge and tools they will need to develop their walk and make their faith their own. I originally considered going into college ministry after I finished my degree as I have a heart for that age group as well. I have found that being a student minister has allowed me to share the gospel with not only the students I teach but their families and siblings along the way, as well. It is such a joy to be able to reach people in all walks of life, not just the students I see every week at services. Upon first meeting me, my overwhelming personality may seem intimadating to some but after a few moments, they see that it is instead, a zeal for the Lord that is  unreserved and is in its raw, God given form. I love unconditionally, speak with urgency and lead with humility.
