Pastor of Discipleship
I am a native Arizonan, born in Safford and raised in the Phoenix area. I have been married to Katie since 2002 and we are blessed to be parents of four great kids, Kylie, Brooklyn, Peyton, and Lincoln. One of my favorite things to do is to spend time with my family–never a dull moment! I have a driving passion in ministry to see the lives of people changed by the grace of God, living out abiding faith in Jesus Christ to the glory of God. I am a University of Arizona alum and have a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I have served in a variety of church ministry roles and contexts and am excited to be serving the Vail community!
