I was raised in a ministry-minded family and have been serving the Church since I was a small child. God has given me the opportunity to serve in many different churches, ministry areas, and roles, and I consider myself "jack-of-all-trades". I have leadership experience in youth, worship, children's, and Justice ministry. I have experience preaching, teaching, and writing curriculum. I am an eternal optimist who loves sports, music, and people. I bring energy, passion, and humor to every situation and I work well with others. Last May, I married my incredible wife, Elisa. She is a Sr. at OCC who is interested in working in Justice ministry either through a church or a para-church organization. We will both be graduating in May and are excited to see where God leads us.
I have 7 years of experience as a youth ministry volunteer and small group leader.
I have been involved in worship/creative arts ministry for 8 years as a volunteer, intern, and leader. I am proficient in Bass, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, and vocals.
I spent a year as a children's ministry worship leader, organizing and mentoring a band of youth ministry students.
I have taught in a youth ministry setting and have preached at the youth ministry level and have experience supply preaching to adult audiences. I also have experience writing devotional curriculum for a week long youth mission trip.
