I am passionate about sharing the Gospel of grace, and take numerous opportunities to talk with people in the community about Jesus. I can be found every week on our sidewalk, sharing a cold glass of lemonade in the summer or a hot cup of cocoa in the winter–along with a big serving of gospel— talking with people about Jesus. As an illusionist, I use magic tricks as a way to share the gospel with adults and children alike. In addition to my pastoral role at Faith, I also serve the wider community as chaplain for Civil Air Patrol Lunken Squadron 078.
I am glad to be called to serve with the people of Faith along with my wife, Jennifer; daughters Madison and Hannah; and son, Tommy. We welcome you to worship with us on Sunday and look forward to meeting you!
