I was born in Karachayevsk, Russia, but grew up in Pensacola, Florida. After all those days on the beach, I thought I should go somewhere really exotic, so I attended college in Jackson, Mississippi. I played soccer at Belhaven University for four years and graduated with a degree in Business Administration. During those four years, I met the most beautiful woman in the world, my wife Sarah. We dated for a bit and I married her as quickly as possible. A couple weeks after our wedding, we packed our bags and moved across America to the town of Loveland. I served for two years at a church in Loveland until God brought me to The Town Church in January 2014. I served at the Town Church for the past three years until God called us to plant a church in Greeley, Colorado.
Sarah and I have two boys (Isaiah and Simon) and love life. We enjoy activities ranging from biking and hiking to watching TV shows and playing games with friends.
