I am a Servant of God and follower of Jesus, and my favorite Bible verse is Deuteronomy 32:3. My greatest strength is that I am an encourager, my greatest weakness is addressing conflict. I have the Spiritual Gifts of “Encouragement” and “Helps”, and the StrengthsFinder themes of “Harmony” and “Developer” seem to fit. Some people who know me well say that I am humble and kind.

I have been blessed to be married to a godly wife and to have 2 beautiful daughters. My wife is a registered nurse who has a passion for labor and delivery as well as missions. I am so glad I can teach at a Christ centered college where I can share my faith and experiences to help prepare young people to use their God-given talents to serve Him in this world.

Traveling overseas to India, Guatemala, and Liberia has opened my eyes to the many needs people in other countries have. Traveling has also opened my eyes to the embarrassment of riches - and at the same time the extreme levels of poverty - that I simultaneously have.

In my spare time I love coaching and playing volleyball.
