I enjoy counseling and providing spiritual coaching to people in need. I have had the opportunity to help people in their marriages and other times of need. I consider it an honor that I have been given, even if the issues are not "pretty" and often found in serious crisis. I love to see how God can redeem a situation or broken relationship. He uses us to help fix things and people that are desperate, in need of restoration and direction. Being a key role in this process is to me, what ministry is really about!

Pastoral Gifts

I have learned some valuable skills through my time in ministry including counseling, preaching, teaching, church discipline, confiict resolution and ministry partnering/servant leadership.

Worship Leading

I am skilled in all aspects of worship leadership and love working with musicians-seeing them grow in their abilities, often surpassing their own expectations!

Guitar, bass, drums, piano

They had a rockstar rating-I couldn't resist I've been playing guitar since 15 years old! I love it I can produce a guitar tone that sounds similar to U2 or other modern rock bands that use delays and overdrive I also play drums, bass, piano and harmonica-(every guitar player has to play one!!)
