How did you become a Christian?
I attended a Christian camp during Elementary School. It was at camp that I recognized something different about the people and leaders at the camp that I wanted in my life. Throughout the week at camp it became clear that the difference was their relationship with Jesus. During one of the events of the week there was an opportunity for those who desired to acknowledge their sin and need for Jesus- I gladly accepted.

How long have you been at SPC?

Since 1998 (7th Grade)

Why are you drawn to the role of Trustee?

My professional experience is in commercial building management, involving budgeting and care for commercial facilities of all types. I felt that my experience lent itself well to the need of the South Park.

What is your favorite Bible verse or story?
Ephesians 3:16-19

Where are you involved through SPC?
I was a regular small group attendee and then eventually became a small group leader with my wife Emilie (who I met at SPC). I have also participated in Iron Men, and Be the Bridge. I have also served at Keenagers, as a greeter and in facilities care.

What is a fun fact about you?
I am a licensed pilot - and if there is adventure to be had - I am always interested in going. Email
