He loves reading theology, science fiction and fantasy literature. He also enjoys traveling, trying new foods and enjoying the Colorado microbrew atmosphere.

Fun Fact:
I have sung professionally while at Seminary and enjoy the opportunity to sing and play guitar at church and school. My family and friends have a house rule that I must always be beaten first when playing games.

What I love about my position:
I love creative preaching and the opportunity to connect God’s children to the Word in unique and relational ways. I have a great love for families in church and school.

Bible Verse with Special meaning:
2 Corinthians 6:3-10, “3 We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, 4 but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 5 beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; 6 by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; 7 by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 8 through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; 9 as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and yet not killed; 10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.”

As a fan of swords and sword play, I love this verse as we have weapons of righteousness in both hands. St. Paul describes the weapons Christians carry as the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God!
