I’m a family man – husband to Suzanne and father to Maddy, both of whom I love fiercely. We’ve also got a beagle named Charlie rounding out our merry little band. Some important rituals in our house: watching Wheel of Fortune at night, reading lots of books, sharing meals with friends, and laughing and dancing as frequently as possible
I’m a local church pastor in a rural congregation in southwest Kansas. I’ve pastored in small, medium, and large churches over the last decade and have a passion for relationship-driven ministry. I really enjoy playing together in the sandbox of ideas, which involves listening, studying, digesting, and communicating them.
I’m a student at Wesley Seminary in the M.Div. program and will complete my studies in August of 2018. I have not chosen a specialization, instead selecting my electives to reflect spiritual formation, history, language, and theology.
I’m a nerd, through-and-through. I grew up and still enjoy playing board games, card games, collectible games, and role-playing games, with a little bit of video gaming mixed in. I read and watch science fiction and fantasy and enjoy comic books as well.
