I grew up as a pastor's kid in Phoenix, AZ. I still remember the day I got saved. My family was cleaning up at the church when my dad turned the conversation to the gospel. I knew I was a sinner and that I deserved to go to hell. I understood that Jesus died in my place and rose again. I asked God to forgive my sin and give me eternal life, and He did!

During my teenage years, I began to be interested in full-time ministry. In college, I studied church music and also met my beautiful wife Elise. We got married in Colorado (Elise’s home state) and then moved back to AZ so that I could attend seminary. During the summers, we enjoyed serving at a Christian camp, where I preached to the juniors.

In 2014, we moved to the high desert of Southern California, where I pastored for six years at Life Point Baptist Church in Apple Valley. Then, in 2020, God called us back home to Northwest Valley Baptist Church in Glendale, AZ, where I serve as youth and discipleship pastor.

The Lord has blessed us with five excitable, adorable children—Anaya, Felicity, Mollie Jo, Klayton, and Ivan. We love serving and playing together. Our lives are full, and we’re thankful!
