I was fortunate to have grown up in the church. I remember hearing the stories of the Bible, and believe that I was truly born again at a young age. In middle school I started learning the guitar, and quickly got involved in my church youth group worship team. It was in this community that I came alive to the power of Christian fellowship, and grew and matured in my faith.
Since then God has been growing in me the ability and passion for leading corporate worship, which is my primary role as Worship Pastor at Faith. Worshipping the Lord can happen in an infinite amount of ways, but I believe there is something universal and profound about corporate worship through song. I believe that the Christian tradition of meeting weekly to hear God’s word and sing songs together is an invaluable part of our growth into Christlikeness. It is an absolute privilege to lead my local church family in worship every week. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the best worship leader in the room, and I simply seek to join Him in leading others to experience the power of God’s Gospel and presence.
My wife Amy and I met at Christian Challenge, a campus ministry here at K-State. We quickly fell in love and have been falling deeper in love ever since. We have a beautiful son named Bearit. You’ll often find us going on walks with him and our golden retriever, Arwen, enjoying some Dairy Queen, or feasting on liquid cheese at any local Mexican restaurant. I am an avid Sporting Kansas City soccer fan, one of the few in town. I am a total nerd with all things NASA, I will only drink dark roast coffee, and believe that a good pair of socks are worth their weight in gold.
