My primary job is strategic direction and development of our ministry strategies at The Austin Stone across our campuses. I also serve as an elder at our North campus.
Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, it wasn’t until hearing the gospel preached and watching it lived out by some Young Life leaders in high school that Jesus saved me. He has been faithful and good to me since that day even in great suffering and loss, and I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.
God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), and five kids (Micah, Hudson, Emmaline, Owen and Lucy). Growing up in the north, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have children native Texans, but we’re ever adapting to the south!
Since 2004, I have served in several capacities at The Austin Stone, including leading a setup team, leading missional communities, overseeing the college ministry, directing our connections ministry, leading our efforts in missional communities, managing our campuses, and developing ministry from the nursery to the nations. I am continually humbled by all I have seen the Lord do in and through this church, and eagerly desire to see God do more!
