Heather Ruth and I have been married for 23 years and have three children. I have lived in New York for over 15 years, but I was born in Louisiana, and spent time in Texas as well. We have three children, Abigail, Micah and Reagan (the baby).
I've been a pastor for over 18 years, and love to be a part of helping people pursue a relationship with God. At different times in my own life, I know I have struggled to understand faith in a way that makes sense, and so I enjoy discussing those ideas with others as they are comfortable. As a church, we want to be good neighbors and really help people, and in that process share the life-giving, authentic faith and relationship with God we have discovered. You can expect that during teaching at Crossroads, I will use scripture directly and often, along with humor and stories, to explain what it is like to grow in faith and in a relationship with God.
I love hanging with people! However, I also enjoy listening to music, watching sports, all things tech, laughing with friends, and spending time with my wife and children.
