- Director of Youth Ministries/Contemporary WorshipSeptember 2007 to October 2013 El Dorado, KansasI get to help students get to know who Jesus is and begin the incredible, most awesome, adventure of life in chasing Him. I also get to take people to God's throne through music, which is most excellent.
- Director of Youth MinistriesOverland Park, KansasI still get the privilege of equipping and empowering teenagers to be who God made them to be- just on a journey of faithful following in a new way...
- I'm a family man, with 6 kiddos and a wonderful wife, who is also a youth pastor guy. Thus, I spend most of my life chasing students or children and saying "NO!" a lot. But, I love my life and enjoy getting to do what I love and see lives change!
I am a missional, evangelical, post/protestant, liberal/conservative, mystical/poetic, biblical, charismatic/contemplative, fundamentalist/calvinist, anabaptist/anglican, methodist, catholic, green, incarnational, depressed-yet-hopeful, emergent, unfinished Christian.
I have six great kids (although sometimes I wonder if they'll all make it), a small menagerie of animals and an absolutely incredible wife.
