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.
I now live in Columbus with my wife, our two sons, Reagan and Rylan, and our black lab, Benelli.
What I Do
I get to help others grow in their relationship with God and each other through life groups, care opportunities
Life Before The Ridge
