I grew up in Youngstown Ohio. At the age of sixteen, I made the single greatest decision when I decided to follow Jesus Christ. At the age of 17, during a youth service, I received God’s call into ministry. I attended North Central University to study Youth Ministry. While in college I met my future wife Johanna . After college, Johanna and I youth pastored in Hudson Wisconsin for two years, before transitioning as youth pastors to Abundant Life Church in Blaine, MN. In September of 2010, we were voted in as Riverdale Church Lead Pastor.
Johanna and I have 6 children ranging in ages of 16 down to 1. I love spending my free time working out and sipping coffee.
