I have been married to Rachael since 2009 and we have two daughters, Autumn and Elliot. I have lived in Arizona ever since going to the University of Arizona in 2002. I love it here and am blessed to call Arizona home. 

From 2006 to 2020 I taught high school math. I love teaching. I love everything about it, but mostly, I love the interaction with kids and students. It has been an honor to be a small part of the lives of kids and seeing them grow. I am excited to be the Kids Pastor here at Redemption Church Gateway. Jesus loves kids! What a blessing to be able to love and serve kids so that they might come to know, love and follow Jesus! 

I have also completed a Master’s of Divinity from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, which is now Gateway Seminary. If there is one thing I know is that God not only uses us to teach kids, but He also uses kids to teach us. So while I may have a Master’s of Divinity, I know that God has a ton to teach me still through parenting my girls and through serving our kids here at Gateway.
