My greatest accomplishments in life are marrying my college sweetheart and having two beautiful children. My wife is the driving force in my life and she has served alongside me in many areas of ministry; without her support I would not be the man God has called me to be. I am and will always be forever grateful for her sacrifice and passion that allows me to serve Him in amazing ways.
The philosophy of ministry God has called me to is one of emphasizing Preaching/Teaching, Discipleship, and Outreach. I believe the purpose of the church is twofold: to seek and save the lost, and to teach and equip her members. My personal ministry should aide in the mission God has called his church. I believe through relevant, engaging, Scripture-based messages and by intentionally designing ministries that lead people towards discipleship it will create Christ followers who grow closer to Jesus and reach out to the broken who have not encountered the power of the Cross.
Director of Children’s Ministries
I praise God for my mother and grandmother and the Christian environment they provided in my youth. Their strong faith in God was always evident; their witness was an important part of my personal decision for Christ while growing up in Florida. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with a wonderful family; I have two amazing children and a loving husband. Each of them volunteers for service at church, while also providing support to my efforts in ministry. Our family started attending Stafford County Christian Church in 2005 and we knew right away that SCCC was our church home.
I was a volunteer teacher for the Kindergarten and First Grade class before accepting the honor of becoming Director of Children’s Ministries in 2008. My ministry focuses on teaching children about the sacrificial love of Jesus and partnering with parents to help grow their children spiritually. By combining efforts in these two areas, I believe we are equipping children to come to a better understanding of their need for a personal encounter with our savior, Jesus Christ.
I came to Stafford County Christian Church in January of 2020 after working for 15 years in the fitness industry. In 2019 I felt God calling me to do something else, but I wasn’t sure what it was until I was led to this position. I’m excited to join the team and support the church.
My family has attended SCCC since 2016 when we relocated to Stafford. Despite the fact that the pastor was an Ohio State fan (a good reminder that none of us are perfect), we knew that SCCC was where we were meant to be. We regularly host life group and a ladies’ Bible study at our house, so if you want to get plugged in to one of these groups, please reach out! My husband, Ken, and I have three girls, two cats, and two dogs…and sometimes the occasional hamster or fish.
