God is shaping me as a shepherd. From early days studying the Bible and theology, to opportunities to pastor churches in crisis, to a career working with refugees, I’ve long been drawn to helping people grow into who God created them to be. Most importantly that forms my life as the husband of Rachel and father of Joy. Another way it’s recently been expressed is in my work with International Association For Refugees, supporting our missionary teams globally. I also love volunteering in various ways to developing our own church community.
I hold a B.S. in Communications/ Bible & Theology from Multnomah Bible College.
When I find scraps of free time I try to get outdoors: bird watching, biking, kayaking, walking the dog or running feed my soul. Currently, I am on a wild adventure exploring the depths of God’s love which colors everything I do!
