How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ


The summer before my senior year in high school a man was talking (praying) on late night television with his eyes closed. I thought it was strange so I listened to him as he was thanking God for creating birds, trees, the sun, humans, etc. This didn’t fit in my science class and the next day I looked at everything with a new curiosity. Over the next several years, God grew this curiosity for Him and provided answers to my questions along the way. In my mid-20s, I intellectually professed my faith in Him at church with little life change and a few years later, through various trials, I surrendered my life fully to Him. Ever since, through His grace and strength, I have been continuing to follow and serve the author and perfecter of my faith who opened my eyes to see Him through a man talking with his eyes closed.




What I do at Mosaic Community


We are all on a journey and I am blessed to be able to help people take their next step with God whether that is your fist step or your fiftieth. I do this by building relationships, increasing awareness of various faith-building opportunities, encouraging faith in action through teaching and preaching, leading the Men’s Ministry and investing in leaders.




Why I do what I do


I exist to disciple disciples that disciple disciples! I do what I do because God has developed in me a love for Him, His Word, and people through more than 20 years of ministry locally, nationally, and internationally. God has called me out of the corporate world to full-time ministry to help people walk, worship, and work for God.

I have Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I also have Biblical leadership and expository teaching training from Bible Study Fellowship International and Leadership Resources International.
