NEW TO WCCN?
After beginning my ministry as youth pastor in Kansas City and then planting a new church in Ohio, Linda (my wife) and I have served as missionaries all over the world for 17 years. Following our missionary service, I served as Executive Pastor at Fairview Village Church of the Nazarene. And now God has called us here! Linda and I have two grown children (Rachel,married to Trevor, and Jordan).
In my free time, I like to ride my motorcycle with Linda, play basketball, read, or watch sports. I am passionate about helping people become fully devoted followers of Jesus, and I believe that God wants to change the world through us, his Church.
Pastor to Families with Students
Students are, hands down, the coolest people on the planet!! I have been working with students for over 10 years and I can say I have the best job in the world...ok, maybe I am a little biased. My greatest passions are helping students come alive in Jesus and helping them build authentic relationships with their peers, families, and the church. I believe students are a current generation of leaders in the church, so I am committed to helping them embrace the ‘Kingdom Impact’ they can make now.
I am a Jesus follower, a husband to an incredible wife (Natalie) and father to three great kids, Trey (12), Selah (4) and Judah (2). I love reading, all things outdoors and sports, and drinking hot chocolate (because I am not mature enough for coffee).
Pastor to Families with Children and Outreach
Music style preferences for people are so diverse, even within our congregation. But I think that nearly any style of music can cross those barriers if it originates out of our hearts as true worship to our Lord. It is my desire that everyone who attends our services will truly experience the presence of the Lord. I pray the Lord will use our music to unite our congregation in worship to Him.
My wife Beth and I have two awesome kids, Simon and Noelle. We really enjoy being outside and watching the kids play soccer and ride horses.
Congregational Care Pastor
Reaching out to people and letting them know God loves them is something I try to do each and every day! After 31 years at General Motors, I retired and have been serveing as the Visitation Pastor at WCCN for ten years. I attended Olivet Nazarene University and Wright State University, graduating in Drafting Technology. I also served two years in the U.S. Army as a Medical Corpsman. During my time in the U.S. Army I served in Korea for 13 months. I have a passion for senior adults and believe that without them we would not be as blessed as we are today.
