I was born and raised in west Texas. I’m a husband to Amanda, father to 4 kids (Graham, Eloise, Rosalie, and Caris). I’ve been in pastoral ministry since 2014 and was in the corporate world before that.
I’m a movie junkie (particularly action and superhero movies), a board-gamer and a lover of Texas Tech athletics. When I’m not at church you can find me hanging out with my family, exploring new restaurants, or drinking too much coffee.
I’m the Lead Pastor of Gateway which means I provide spiritual and organizational leadership to the church, it’s governing board, and it’s staff. I’m also the primary preacher and teacher.
My passion is that people might know God and thrive in him. I love people being connected, growing in relationship with God and with one another.
MOST UNUSUAL ITEM IN MY OFFICE: busted water pipes from Wisconsin.

PETS: Golden Retriever (Esme) and cat (Cookie)
SOMETHING NO ONE WOULD GUESS ABOUT ME: I have two different colored eyes.
SONG I HAVE ON REPEAT: Way Maker by Leeland
