Hi there! I have the awesome and fun adventure of being the 5th-8th Grade Family Life Lead here at Hosanna. Hosanna has always had a special place in my heart because it is where I grew up and found my passion for youth ministry. After high school I went to Concordia University in Nebraska to get my DCE (Director of Christian Education). After that I served at a congregation in the Twin Cities for 8 years as their director of youth and young adult ministries.


My wife Kelsie and I were married here at Hosanna 10 years ago and now we’ve got three beautiful kiddos: Jordan, Carly, and Bailey. I enjoy watching Twins baseball, being outside, playing numerous sports, playing board & card games, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family!
