I was born in Indiana but raised for the majority of my life in the heartland of America- Manhattan, Kansas (a.k.a "The Little Apple").
I attended Kansas State University and graduated in 2010 with degrees in Political Science and Economics. While at K-State I learned to love the color purple, KSU Football, and also what it means to have a genuine relationship with Jesus. I was involved with a campus ministry called Student Mobilization, where I learned how to walk with Jesus, study the word, and make disciples. It provided an incredible foundation for my faith and it was during my senior year at KSU that God opened up a door for me to minister to college students oversees in India. I spent a year Hyderabad, India before returning to Kansas to work on staff with StuMo at the University of Kansas from 2012-2015.
In August of 2015 God called me to Memphis to be a part of what he's doing through Harvest Church. I have a passion is to reach college students and young people with the gospel of Jesus and to establish and equip them to multiply the gospel to the world. I currently serve Harvest as the Director of College and Young Adult Ministries. I spend much of my ministry time on the University of Memphis campus seeking to help students know Christ and make him known.
I love K-State Football, the KC Royals, waterfowl hunting, mountain biking, eating barbecue (KC or Memphis- it's all great), and I consider myself an aspiring Memphis Grizzlies fan.
I recently married to my beautiful wife Chelsea! She grew up in Dallas and attended the University of Arkansas and then she spent 5 years living in Hyderabad, India, but we had mutual friends from College that connected us and we dated, got engaged, and were married all in 8 months!
My Hope For Harvest
My hope for Harvest is that we would be a family of men and women who love Jesus and walk deeply with him for a lifetime, and as we live compelled by his love for us we will seek to make disciples of all nations.
