I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating high school, I joined the army and, after being honorably discharged, began my undergraduate studies.
Katy and I were married in May of 2003. We moved to St. Louis, Missouri where I began graduate work at Concordia Seminary. I completed my vicarage (Internship) at St. John's Lutheran Church, Union, Illinois in 2006 and graduated from Concordia in 2007.
The first congregation I served was Holy Cross Lutheran in Nederland, Texas as Associate Pastor (2007-2011). I accepted the Call to be the Pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church and Lutheran Unity School in Chicago, Illinois (2011- 2015). In 2015 I accepted the Call to serve as Pastor at Hosanna in Kerrville, Texas.
I have been married to my wife Katy for 12 years and we have a son, Jonah, and 3 daughters, Anna, who was born to us, and Chloe and Bethany, who came to live with us after Katy's sister was called home to the Lord.
Katy has a B.A. in Theology and is DCE (Director of Christian Education) certified with a specialization in children’s ministry.
