Husband/Dad/Pastor/Theologian/Designer/Normal Guy

Writing bio pages are my worst nightmare. Here's my life in bullet points instead.

  • I’m originally from Everett, Washington.
  • Jesus saved me at the age of 10, later that day I was baptized.
  • I went to Bible College in Minnesota.
  • I went to Seminary in North Carolina. 
  • I got my wife, Heather's, attention by singing her Relient K lyrics at a bonfire because that's what you do at Bible College.
  • We got married in 2010 and have two boys - Andrew & Henry.
  • Back in 2007, God developed a burden in my heart for church planting. Shortly after this I fell in love with the province of Saskatchewan.
  • In 2011, I began pastoring at Grace Baptist Church in Austin, MN.
  • After spending some time in NC, in 2016 I moved to Saskatchewan to take a pastorate at a Baptist church.
  • Currently our family is building momentum and support in order to plant a church in Saskatchewan.

Other Random Info:

  • I’m the biggest Star Wars fanatic you've ever seen.

  • I'm still hoping the Seattle Sonics come back.
  • I think "lol" is legitimately the worst phrase ever created.

  • Vernor's ginger ale is what I assume the Crystal Sea consists of in Glory.
