• I grew up on in Traverse City, Michigan with my parents and brother and sister. Growing up in a Christian family, I was involved in AWANA, Sunday School, mission trips, etc. very often. I accepted Christ into my life when I was 6 with my Father, a pastor. From there, I followed His example of wishing to serve God in full-time ministry.

    In 2017, I moved to Chicago to study at The Moody Bible Institute. Here, I studied Children and Family Ministries and Biblical studies. I am thankful to the professors who gave me a love for studying the Word and teaching it to others.

    In December of 2019, I married my high school sweetheart, Corinne. She is a nurse and is a great life partner for me.

    In August of 2020, I accepted the call to serve on the pastoral staff here at Maranatha. I am excited and blessed to be a part of the great ministry team at Maranatha and to join the body of believers here in our mission of proclaiming the joy of salvation to a world in need and encouraging Christ's followers in their walk with Him.

    I love playing sports, hiking, camping, board games, movies, reading classic literature, and spending time with people.
