I grew up as a pastor's son (the youngest), in Tucson, AZ.
I have one brother. He has always shared life's weight with me.
We grew up at Tanque Verde Lutheran Church. While we may have played under the pews on Saturday mornings, while our father practiced his sermon; it was the people of this place that taught us about the community of faith.
There have been moments in my life where God has broken through my thick skull, smacked up upside the head and kicked in my teeth. These moments have helped me to trust in the activity of God throughout my life.
California Lutheran University gave me some of the best experiences, learning opportunities and friends I could ever have imagined.
I was blessed by almost a decade in youth ministry.
And recently I have been called into the most two important and wonderful vocations I could ever imagine. 1. Continue to be a loving husband and 2. Raise a child to know God.
After five and a half years, I will be graduating this December with my M Div!!!!!!!!
I look forward to this journey with you all.
