I was born in the great state of Ohio, but raised in a Christian home right here in Sachse, TX. In 1993, I was blessed to marry my bride, Vicki. We have two God-given adventures: Jesse and Cooper. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and have spent most of my adult life in the corporate environment.
I have always been involved in the local church in some capacity. Serving has always been part of my family’s DNA. Whether leading worship or teaching children’s or youth ministry, we have always been plugged in somewhere. My family came to Northplace almost six years ago and our lives have been greatly impacted by the Lord’s work through Northplace.
In late 2011, God chose to take me on the most amazing, faith-building journey I have ever experienced. Leading (really dragging) me away from the corporate world, and through a series of supernatural events, the Lord changed the trajectory of my story. I knew that the rest of my life had to be dedicated to people and purpose. It is my honor to have been appointed Children’s Pastor of Northplace Church in September of 2012.
WHAT I DO
My role is to oversee all aspects of the Northplace Church Children’s Ministry and serve as the primary teaching pastor for Northplace Kids. My passion is to lead and help parents lead our children in the Northplace vision of experiencing Christ, Community and Compassion. Partnership with parents is a key ingredient in equipping children as they become fully devoted followers of Christ.
Working under the philosophy that “two combined influences make a greater impact than just two influences”, my goal is to assist in merging the efforts of church and home for the sake of the children. Equipping parents to easily and effectively extend the Sunday teaching throughout the week can have a revolutionary effect on the lives of our children.
