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 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 wife and I are recent graduates of Covenant Theological Seminary. I believe God has given me gifts and I am eager to use them in ministry. We have a passion for community, and hope to find a church which we can love and share the wonderful news of God's grace.
