I'm a native of Missouri, where the rivers run, and I love to fish, camp, canoe, hike, pretty much anything outdoors.  I received the Lord at a young age, but didn’t really “own” my faith until I was 19, when I decided to stop borrowing my parents’ faith and make it my own.

Following God’s call into vocational ministry, I studied music, graduating from Culver-Stockton College (B.M.E.) in 2006, and from Moody Theological Seminary (M.Div.) in 2016.  I met my wife, Corinne, in college, and we have four boys, Asher, Jack, Elliot, and Graham.

I have served on-staff as Worship Arts Pastor at Central Baptist Church in Springfield, IL, and as Associate Pastor at Pontiac Bible Church in Pontiac, IL.  I'm passionate about leading a church to create glimpses of the Kingdom of Heaven through heartfelt worship, biblical teaching, relational discipleship, intentional outreach, and radical generosity.

I'm also a hobby-geek who loves all things tech, and my favorite fictional work is the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  I hope to continue studying theology and someday earn a Ph.D.  As a musician, I play piano, saxophone, and guitar, and love blues, jazz, rock, and Americana music.
