My wife Katie and I came to CFC during our college years in 1998. Soon after coming to CFC we plugged into Children's Ministry as table leaders and God ignited our hearts with a passion for seeing His children come to Him. We were married here in 2000 and have began the process of raising 5 children -- Landon (2006), Elaine (2008), Levi (2010), Elliot (2013), and Emilia (2016). I love the picture of the Church in Colossians 3:12-17, doing life together with thankful hearts in the name of the Lord Jesus. I graduated with a degree in Organizational Management from Oakland City University and completed a graduate certificate at Liberty University. If I’m watching TV, it is probably the Food Network or Travel Channel. I love to cook (and eat) as well as to travel. The best vacations have an element of education about history and culture.
