I grew up in Missouri (south of St. Louis). I spent four years in Tennessee completing undergraduate degrees in Sculpture (that's right, Sculpture) and Biblical Studies at Union University. After a few years of managing a Starbucks Coffee Company in St. Louis, my beautiful wife (Kirsten) and I headed north to Illinois where I received a Masters of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. We lived in North Dakota for 4 1/2 years where I served as the Pastor of Equipping at Trinity Church. We moved to Fort Collins in 2009 to plant The Town Church.
Kirsten and I have five sons (Ezra, Asher, Obed, Solomon and Uzziah). As a family, we enjoy doing almost anything in the great outdoors. I enjoy running, backpacking, reading, roller skating and listening to records with my family.
