I don’t remember exactly when I trusted Christ, but I remember going to church when I was in elementary school and adults sharing the love of Christ with me. My faith really came alive in 7th grade when my middle school pastor started pouring into me and teaching me how to follow Jesus. That’s part of why I love sharing Christ with teens so I can do the same for others.
I moved to Fort Worth in 1998 when I came to TCU. Even though I worked and attended other churches, I was aware of the reputation of Christ Chapel as a church that teaches the truth and loves people well. Because of that I was excited when I came on staff 7 years ago as the Middle School Pastor. Recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to lead our amazing Life Stage 1 team. It’s my life’s calling to help teens find their joy and identity in Jesus and to help other leaders do the same.
My wife, Kara, and I have been married since 2002. We met at TCU and got married just out of college. This past year we welcomed our little boy Knox into the world. We love traveling and trying hole-in-the wall restaurants. When I’m not hanging out with my family or students you can find me reading, running or attempting to play my banjo.
