Pastor of Business & Finance

Our Family

One of the greatest resources and responsibilities that God has given me is my family. My wife Carol and I were married in July of 2000. In April of 2005, our first son Eli Joel was born. Then, in June of 2009, God blessed us with the birth of our second son, Aden Shawn.

Ministry Philosophy

I exist to love those entrusted to me.  I do this by helping, encouraging, equipping, and inspiring others to embrace life and move towards wholeness and maturity.  When I am gone, my legacy will be that those my life has touched are healthy in spirit, mind, and body and are helping others to achieve the same.
