Royal Servants Mission Trip Leader


I felt called to full-time ministry while in high school. God then lead me to spend three summers as a student on Royal Servants. After graduating high school, I earned a bachelor’s degree in Bible from Moody Bible Institute and a Masters of Arts in Religion from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

I spent 7 years teaching Bible at a Christian high school in Minnesota, before meeting my wife Stacey and moving to Maryland in 2015. Stacey and I have a passion for helping students grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. During the school, year I teach freshmen Bible at Annapolis Area Christian Schools and have the joy of serving with Royal Servants during the summer.  

Having served with Royal Servants for more than a decade, I have had the joy of travel to more than 25 countries, working with dozens of ministry partners, and ministering to hundreds of Students.  Stacey and I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for our next decade of ministry together with Royal Servants.

I Like:

Listening to audiobooks (particularly presidential biographies), running, and cooking.

I Love:

My family and studying and teaching Bible in it’s historical and cultural context.

i can't get enough of:

Coffee, chocolate, sermons, and audiobooks.
