Although I currently live in the Northwoods, I grew up in the Southprairies in Oklahoma City, OK. I grew up in a loving Christian home and was surrounded by great friends from our church. I gave my life to Christ at an early age, but it wasn't until a summer in college that I truly realized what a relationship with Jesus was. I learned what it was like to depend on him and what it was like to have him as a friend. That love has grown through the years and the trials that have come my way.
I went to college at Southern Nazarene University. Go Crimson Storm! Another ambiguous weather mascot similar to the Wheaton Thunder. Anyway, after college I worked at several camps and learned that I loved the fun and active ministry that camp provides. This is where I was lucky enough to meet my wife, Hannah. We have a shared love of camping ministry and taking care of God's creation.
After spending our first year of marriage in Oklahoma City we moved to HoneyRock to see what higher education in camping ministry looked like. After a year we were sold on the Outdoor and Adventure Leadership masters degree in the CFM department. We started graduate school in the fall of 2013 to learn what makes camp such a powerful tool and how to use it to grow God's kingdom. I am very practical so it is great to be able to apply what I am learning in class to my work as the Activity Area Coordinator.
