Best Vacation Ever Tent camping with the buffalos at Custer State Park, SD
Little-Known Facts I’m no pro at it yet, but I love remodeling projects around the house. I’m a morning guy and love getting up at 6 every day, and I wish I was fluent in Spanish and am always trying to learn as much as I can. I love to camp, and have big plans with the family to do some pretty awesome road trip tent camping adventures in the coming summers.
Why Student Ministry? Students are passionate – when challenged to do something big for Jesus – they aren’t as likely to think through all the if’s, they’re more likely to just passionately follow God. I love getting to speak into their lives in these years when they’re making these lifelong decisions. Plus, I’m not sure you can have more fun in ministry than in Student Ministry!

Best Vacation Ever South Carolina with my family
Little-Known Facts I love missions, traveling, exercising and laughing. I love to create and recreate through photography and home projects with my husband.
Why Student Ministry? Because students are amazing, they love well, laugh hard, play hard and are looking for what is true and real. Students are passionate about what they love and are trying to figure out what that is and how to live it out. I love to create spaces for them to figure these life questions out and love being a part of their journey.
Favorite Restaurant Flippin’ Sweet (Kearney NE)
Favorite Retro Toy Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots
Best Vacation Ever Staying in a cabin at Estes Park with my whole family.
Little-Known Facts Whenever I eat pancakes or waffles, I HAVE to heat up my syrup, it just doesn’t taste the same if it’s cold. I really enjoy reading, but it takes me forever to finish a book because I’m such a slow reader. I make rap music, but I don’t rap.
Why Student Ministry? High school is a crazy, fun, sometimes scary, ride full of decisions that affect the rest of our lives. When I was a student I didn’t have a great leader to show me how to make the right decisions. In result of that I just followed what everyone else did and strayed away from my faith. I want to be the leader to students that I didn’t have in my youth, and in every way possible point them back to Christ.
