Tell us a little about your family…
My wife Merci and I met at the inCharacter School of Ministry. We were married on July 13, 2013, and now we have two wonderful children—Wesley, who loves gymnastics, and Shiloh, who loves her big brother.

Tell us a little about you…
I was born in Baltimore, MD, in 1979 and grew up in Princess Anne, MD. I played baseball and soccer throughout my school years. I encountered Jesus in a very powerful way at the age of 23, and shortly after, I enrolled at the inCharacter School of Ministry. I was part of inCharacter as a student and staff member for several years. During my time with iC, I discovered my love for youth ministry and have had the privilege of ministering to students for over 15 years. My heart is to see students become mature disciples of Christ and experience God’s adventure in their lives.

Favorite Bible verse?
2 Corinthian 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
