PASSIONS: Mobilizing faith in adolescents through connections in church & community.


SCRIPTURE(S): Recently, I've been leaning into 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 "The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Lord’s Spirit is, there is freedom.  All of us are looking with unveiled faces at the glory of the Lord as if we were looking in a mirror. We are being transformed into that same image from one degree of glory to the next degree of glory. This comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

QUOTE: "Humanity does not pass through phases as a train passes through stations: being alive, it has the privilege of always moving yet never leaving anything behind. Whatever we have been, in some sort we are still." - C.S. Lewis, Allegory of Love

MUSIC: Sleeping At Last, Josh Garrels, Gungor, and a bunch of low key hip hop.

MOVIES: So many different movies! Any Kevin Costner film about baseball, everything Pixar, movies that make you think, laugh, cry, and want to live better stories.

HOBBIES: Coffee drinking & making, reading, discovering new music, and most of all being present with my wife and daughters. 

FOODS: Most everything except cucumbers. Cucumbers are the worst.

OTHER QUIRKYNESSES: I've never had a brain freeze or broken a bone that's needed a cast.
