Director Community Engagement & Program Development
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was trained up in the ways of being a cheesehead. (That means I was raised to be a Green Bay Packers fan, but please don’t hold that against me.) I met my lovely wife, Dawn, at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN – her hometown. We’ve been married for 18 years and have worked together in youth ministry, young adult ministry, church planting and as associate pastors. We have two (mostly) wonderful children, Jackson and Iyla. I’m currently working on my Master of Divinity degree at Austin Seminary. I’m new to the WUMC staff and the United Methodist Church. I’m passionate about engaging the community, pointing people to the God who loves us unconditionally, and connecting people into the life of this church – a church that embraces and supports us all on our spiritual journeys.
