I was raised in the Evangelical Covenant Church, coming to faith in Christ Jesus at a young age, I am grateful for the many Jesus followers who have helped nurture my faith. 


I met my wife Allison, while serving at a Covenant Church in New England.  We were married in 2001 and have three boys, Ryan, Brendan and Micah.  I have served Covenant Churches in New Hampshire, Minnesota and Nebraska in a variety of ministry roles.  I was called to serve as Senior Pastor of First Covenant Willmar in the summer of 2017. 


Philippians 2 is an important passage of Scripture for me as I try to walk in obedience to the calling the LORD has extended to me.  I am humbled and grateful to be a part of this wonderful congregation that is First Covenant Church.
