My Family:Married to Mindy in April 2000. We have four children. Ben was born in 2002, Matthew in 2004, and Jadyn and Jordyn, my twins girls, born in 2007.
My Story:I was raised in a Christian home and began my relationship with God at an early age. In college I received a BA in Bible and a BBA in Business Management. While attending seminary, God drew me to lead and serve in the corporate arena. At the same time, I was teaching and serving in a local church as a layman.
In 2006 my roommate and best friend from college called and informed me he felt called to plant a church in Buckeye, AZ. The vision resonated in my heart and almost 2 years later, we moved out to Festival and helped start The Church at Sun Valley.
Something Most People Don’t Know:I won consecutive pinewood derby Texas state championships as a kid…ok, my engineer father built the car, but I have the trophies to show for it.
My Trademark Expression:A look of bewilderment. Oh, you mean a catch phrase…”Who said that was a good idea?” Of course most of the time it was me.
Besides the Bible, My Recommended Reading Would Be:Power of Prayerby E.M. Bounds,Overcoming Sin and Temptationby John Owen, and of course, Dave Barry’s Greatest Hits.
I’m Most Excited About:Watching God move in the lives of our Festival Community.
My Favorite TV Shows:Castle,Person of Interest, and of course, SPORTS!
In My Free Time, I Usually:There’s a thing called Free Time?!?! Watching tv with my wife, along with working out and running.
