I am passionate about the discipleship and faith development of our youth. I love working together with parents, youth, and other servant leaders to teach God’s children about Christ’s love and equip them to “go out” on show that love to others. We, at Holy Cross, focus our ministry on events that will have a greater impact on our youth’s faith…such as servant events, camps, lock-ins, retreats, and week long events.
After growing up at Holy Cross, in Wichita, Kansas, I went to Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska and enrolled in the Director of Christian Education Program. While in school I met and married Pamela, also a DCE student. Pam received and took the call to her internship congregation, Redeemer Lutheran, in Lincoln, Nebraska where she worked for three-and-a-half years. I came to Lincoln also to fulfill my internship at Calvary Lutheran and received and accepted a call to serve as Calvary’s Minister of Discipleship, where I served for just over two years. I was then called to Holy Cross in late 2006 where I accepted the call as their Minister of Youth and still serve today. We are blessed to have three children, Rachel, David, and Nicole.
