Yacolt Community Church was instrumental in my spiritual growth as a teenager. From here my journey of following Jesus lead me to spend 2 years in 21 different countries on the Logos II missions ship. I then studied for my BA in Cross-cultural Ministry at Bethany College in Minnesota, which is where I met my amazing wife Kellie, who was also a graduate from the same school.
We have together, with God’s help, spent 19 years building a family and working to reach an unreached mountain people group in Asia. I have a certificate in ice cream making from Penn State University, love making ice cream, working with nomadic yak herders, playing soccer, and most all love Jesus.
Now I have the privilege of returning, with Kellie and our 8 kids, to Yacolt Community Church to build a love for Jesus and the Word of God into a new generation of youth, the greater Yacolt community, and to the ends of the earth.
