I grew up in Junction City, Kansas, where I competed in four sports at Junction City High School and had the privilege of meeting my future wife (Mandy). Through my time at JCHS, I received a scholarship to play football for Kansas State University. After my college career and a short stint with the New Orleans Saints, my wife and I moved back to Junction City where I began teaching and coaching at JCHS. During this time is when we both began a true relationship with Jesus Christ and got baptized in November 2016. As I’ve grown in my relationship with Jesus, I have felt a stronger pull towards full-time ministry. As a result, God opened a door to serve at FCA in Manhattan and Junction City; two communities that my wife and I have grown up in and are excited to give back to. Currently, my wife and I have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter (Brinley) and a baby boy (Ezra). As a family we enjoy anything outdoors, taking Brinley to the park, our UCC church home, and spending time with our Lifegroup. We are looking forward to this opportunity to serve Christ through FCA and make an eternal impact on the coaches and athletes here!
