In a Nutshell

Father-of-two-boys. Closet Lumberjack. Anti-OCD. Husband of a redhead. Camping enthusiast. Beardo.

The Full Story

The Ridge has been my home church since 1999. I have had the privilege to serve in several ways as a volunteer over that time period and now I am honored to be able to do that on a full-time basis. When I look back over the years, I can now see how God has guided me into the role of a full time Pastor. I am humbled to get to do this as my career and have a ring-side seat to how God is changing lives. 

I grew up in Peru, Indiana, where I met my wife, Vicki. I then went on to graduate from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. I have personally disqualified myself as a character reference to anyone wanting to attend Grace; my status with the college might still be in question and the statute of limitations on certain matters may not have expired. If you were there, you know why.

Vicki and I have lived in Southern Indiana for 23 years with our two sons Reagan and Rylan.

What I Do

In my role as Executive Pastor, I am part of the operational, financial, and administrative oversight of the church. I am honored to support Adam, our Lead Pastor, in strategic planning and ensuring ministry alignment with the vision of The Ridge.

Life Before The Ridge

I spent 23 years working in Marketing and Advertising.

Words I Live By

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

When I’m Not at Work, I…

…am probably napping, maybe watching a movie or sporting event, likely planning/dreaming of the next outdoor adventure.
