Summary

Discipleship

God has given me a passion for encouraging growth within people.  Some of my happiest moments in life have been through preaching and personal teaching.  I love watching the Holy Spirit opening people's eyes to God's truth and know that he has used me to play some part in it.

Missions/Outreach

I believe that God takes great joy every time a lost "sheep" or lost "coin" is found.  I feel a burden for God's mission throughout the local community and the world.

Visionary Leadership

I have been created to think two steps ahead in life.  I am always looking for ways to advance God's kingdom, and I enjoy building the systems to accomplish these goals.  My focus is in self-sustaining ministries and trying to avoid burnout within active members.

Objective

My family and I are looking for a ministry opportunity that better utilizes my personal gifts as a leader:  Most notable is the great passion and energy I use in my preaching, administration and personal discipleship.  I am innovative and constantly learning; and I thrive in communities that are eager to adapt.  I feel a great burden for the unchurched next-generations, and I want to join a congregation that is willing to place a disproportionate level of energy into raising them into effective leaders in the kingdom of God.

Skills

Preaching

My favorite and most active part of ministry is preaching.  I continue to hone my craft and learning new styles to help me communicate the Gospel in a relateable way. 

Evangelism Training

In addition to studying several methods of evangelism, I've also served as a trainer for others.  Currently I am a part of the leadership team for Revive Indiana in Jasper County.

Youth Ministry

My work  with youth is my best opportunity to teach in an fun way that tackles the daily issues of the next generation.

Small Groups and Catechism Teaching

My love for the historic doctrines of God help me to lead others into a deeper faith which which effectively understands and uses the Word of God.
