I love telling people about Jesus! I remember as a 7 year old leading my friend in a prayer to trust in Jesus and then as a 12 year old asking my grandpa if he knew for sure that he was going to heaven because I wanted to see him there. That has been one of the biggest passions in my life!
My mom and dad’s greatest gift to me was teaching me about a relationship with God. Even though I could see my parents weren’t perfect, I saw their recognition that they needed Jesus and they passed that down to me. They also instilled in me a love for my family, nature, ND, hunting, fishing, riding horses in the badlands, and a passion for painting.
I love beautiful places and have had the opportunity to travel all over the world. I also love mission trips and have gone 10 times to Guatemala leading or facilitating high school mission opportunities. A highlight in my life is a mission trip to Europe in 1997 when the Lord brought my best friend (Sarah) into my life. We were married in 2005 and have been blessed with four amazing children (Gabe, Cassia, Micah, Caleb).
My wife and I have been involved in ministry for over 18 years and the Lord brought us to Circle C Ranch in 2012 to be part of the ministry. I currently serve on the Board of Directors at Circle C Ranch and it has been so rewarding and exciting to be part of what the Lord is doing here at Circle C and to see "Christ at the center of all things!"
