I have been in vocational ministry since 2001 specializing in student ministry on university campuses. I worked with Campus Crusade for Christ from 2001-2006, after which I was accepted to the M.Div. program at Covenant Theological Seminary in Saint Louis. During our time in Saint Louis at Covenant Seminary I served as an adult nurture pastoral intern at The Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church through the church's college ministry, Reformed Campus Fellowship, and teaching adult Sunday school classes.
In 2011 I was called by Covenant Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America to be the Campus Minister of Reformed University Fellowship at The University of Tennessee at Martin.

My focus there was on leadership of a weekly Large Group student gathering on campus with worship and preaching, leading small group Bible studies, meeting with students one-on-one for evangelism and discipleship, and leading our team of pastoral interns.
