I grew up in Hudson, Ohio and met my wife, Kelly, there while we were in 3rd Grade. As I grew up, I always thought I would be a doctor and practice medicine, but as I went into middle school and high school, Jesus began to take a hold of my life. I began to find the most joy in talking to my friends about Jesus, the hope we have in Him, and teaching them more about the Bible. More than anything, I love watching people experience the love of Jesus and Him change their lives. This led me to get my undergraduate degree in Bible and Youth Ministry at Moody Bible institute and then my MDiv degree from Moody Theological Seminary. I’ve had the privilege of serving in different pastoral roles in student and adult ministry in both Ohio and Illinois since 2014. My wife and I have four kids (Rowan, Rory, Elias, and Thaddeus) and a miniature Yorkipoo (Bear). In my free time, I love spending time with my family, reading, and watching all things Cleveland sports.
