Pastor of Life Groups / Teaching
Signature dish (you cook): Corned beef hash and eggs skillet
Good habit: Bible reading, daily exercise, prayer, family time
Bad habit: Easily distracted
Coffee habit: Flat White – Steamed milk poured over ristretto shots of espresso
Personal motto/Life verse: “Just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody” / “The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.” (1 Tim 1:5)
I’m scared to try: Watching “Doctor Who” because it’s got a larger canon of content then the protestant Bible! Old seasons, new seasons, specials, movies and spin-offs, forget it!
Etiquette Pet Peeve: Sneezing/coughing in someone’s direction without covering your mouth. Come on guys, God wants us to love our neighbors!
I wish I could tell my younger self: find your identity in Jesus, get serious about holiness, read good books, build good habits now when the stakes are low. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young but set the example.
I never leave home without: Keys, cell, Bible and backpack full of books, paper and laptop.
Your spouse/best friend would describe you as: Intense, funny, literal, dedicated and easily distracted.
The last book I read/re-read: Joel Beeke’s “A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life” / Michael Holmes “The Apostolic Fathers”
Favorite part of your job/ministry: Preaching, baptizing, dedicating babies and sending out new leaders
