Youth Minister :: Email
Began work at CCC: June, 2015
Hometown: Ferguson, MO
Other family details: Proud father of Jeremiah (born 2008) and Halle (born 2013).
Work history: Started ministry in Waukegan, IL (3.5 years), then moved to Raytown, MO (6 years), and finally arrived in Cabool, MO. I’ve been working with children for nearly 10 years… Yikes, I’m old!
Faith background: Grew up at Ferguson Christian Church in St. Louis. I accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior the summer after my freshman year in High School. It wasn’t until college that I felt the call to go into full-time ministry.
Best part about my job: I love seeing parents baptizing their children. There is something so fulfilling as a youth minister knowing a child has a parent who cares about their relationship with Christ.
Favorite Bible verse: Isaiah 40:28-31; Mostly I love reading about Jesus!
Favorite music: I tell people I like it all (rap, classic rock, alternative, dubstep, classical, etc) except… country music! I’m finding my preferences to be in the minority here in a small town.
Favorite movies: Signs, Casablanca, and most sci-fi movies
Favorite TV show: Psych, Sportscenter, and right now I’m really enjoying Blue Bloods.
Favorite food: Mexican. Fish Tacos are amazing!
Favorite drink: Coffee and water with no ice, please. Oh, and I have a new favorite… La Criox! It’s awesome!
Favorite books or authors: Anything church history related or biographies. I just finished the books The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis and Lead Small by Reggie Joyner.
Favorite vacation destination: Anywhere with a beach and near a place that serves fish tacos.
Favorite hobbies: Watching a St. Louis Cardinals game or Michigan Wolverines football game (Go Blue!), going canoeing, and working on projects around the house.
If I could go back in time, I’d…: Spend time with Martin Luther and watch the Protestant Reformation unfold.
