I grew up in a military family and lived in many places around the country during my lifetime. Although I grew up in church, I never actually had a relationship with God. At age 17 I encountered Jesus and His love for the first time. What a life altering experience that was for me!!! I was instantly changed and the Lord set me on a path to bring others into the same kind of life-changing encounter with God that I had experienced. One of my greatest passions is to see the Kingdom of God transform whole cities and regions through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is my joy to give the rest of my life to seeing this accomplished.
In September of 1995 I started attending Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri where I met my amazing wife, Autumn. Autumn and I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. From there we served as Youth Pastor at High Praise Church in Bolivar, MO for approximately 3 years. In 2001, we moved to Pierre, South Dakota as part of a team that started River Center Church. I served as an Associate Pastor there for 3 years. It was during this time in my life that the Lord blessed Autumn and I with our 2 beautiful children Malachi and Abigail. In 2005 River Center Church helped send us out to start James River Church in Huron, SD. I love Huron and I feel so privileged to serve the people of this community with the Word of God.
