Since 1989 I have been engaged in reaching others around me with the love of Christ.  At the age of 12, I received trainning on how to lead 5-Day Clubs (a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowhsip).  Since that summer of outreach, I have been hooked.  Interwoven into my journey, I have graduated, married, changed jobs, and our family has grown, yet the burden God has placed on my heart for young people has not changed.  In 2006, my journey with Northwestern Colorado Youth For Christ began.  Frederick Buechner captures the feeling I have while working with NWCYFC, "The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

When I am not engaged in ministry, I love being with my family.  Together we enjoy simple things like playing board games and, for us, more complex activities such as camping with our kids who are fairly young.  Both my wife and I have always enjoyed growing up here in Colorado, and now are delighted to share the outdoors here with our own kids.
