I have been serving in youth ministry for nearly 20 years. I am currently the Director of Student Ministries at Valley Church in West Des Moines, IA. My wife Keri and I have been married over ten years and have three great boys. My four favorite things are Jesus, Chicago Style Pizza, my wife, and fighting off our boys with sick ninja moves.
My first priority is to my family. I love Keri and am a better person because of her and I love being a dad, our three boys are great to love and lead.
I have been at First Evangelical Free Church in the youth ministry department since 1999. I am currently the Pastor of Student Ministries.
I have been writing "Mini Ideas" for Group Magazine since 2009. In 2010 I was asked to author "The Wired Ministry" a youth ministry focused tech column.
It is a privilege that I am asked to lead a few technology in ministry workshops at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference. Check out more here (SYMC).
It's clear you're a seasoned presenter. You know how to shift gears from presenting, directing, responding, and interacting with the participants. You're also very at ease with participants and you do a great job establishing personal rapport with them.
