My wonderful wife Katy and I grew up in Portland and love raising our beautiful children, Ari and Juniper, in the glorious Pacific NW. Village has had a huge impact in my journey with Christ as I joined the community as a teenager. The Village community is family and I consider it a great honor to serve my family as part of a ministry team filled with people I learn from every day. After finishing my B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Oregon State, I completed an M.A. of Biblical and Theological Studies at Western Seminary and am currently pursuing a ThM. I have been on staff at Village for over 10 years now, and my different roles have allowed me to live out my passion for helping people grow in their love for God and others. I desire to come alongside people to discover together, how we can live out the Gospel, which invites us to join in God’s mission to restore relationship, justice, and beauty to the broken world.
