I was born and raised in Waterloo IA. My parents had 9 children. I had four brothers and four sisters. I was number eight in the line of 9 (the baby boy). We were raised with an unhealthy fear of God and the enemy. While I knew God was almighty, I believed that He was counting my sins.
Being number eight in my family I was very observant of my older sibling’s achievements and mistakes. Because of the fear of God I tried to do everything in my power to be good, but in the back of my mind I carried the weight of my sins on my shoulders even as young as 6 years old. At age 11 for the first time I heard the gospel through a church service on tv. For the first time I heard that Jesus’ blood covered my sins. I had thought that I needed to earn my place in the presence of God. That day I surrendered my life to the one who bled for me.
Since then God has been faithful to growing me. Cornerstone’s Salt Company and Body of Christ Church in Ames were two places where I was able to find community and grow in my love and knowledge of God.
My lovely wife Stephanie and I have been married going on three years. We have a son named Myles. We share the call to join God in His mission to reconcile all things unto himself and bring light into dark places. Our passion is rooted in God’s passion for unity in the body. We believe that as followers of Christ we are called to love God and our neighbors.
