My wife Kim and I have been at Lifesong Community Church since 2005. We are both natives of Bumpass, VA, became friends and fell in love while working with the youth group at our church, and were married in November of 2000. I am a mechanical engineer and Kim works part-time as an auto insurance underwriter. I like to read and enjoy working on our farm, but my passion is encouraging people to find their God-given purpose and follow that purpose to God’s glory.  We have several nieces and nephews that we love to spend time with and spoil as much as possible.  We find our greatest joy and purpose in ministering to and serving others in the name of our Lord Jesus!

In 2020, we became hobby farmers when we purchased a small farm to raise beef.  It was quite a journey to fulfill this lifelong dream, and we were able to purchase the farm from a friend that I had been helping on the farm for a number of years.  It has been a lot of work and a lot of fun!  We enjoy giving tours, watching the cows grow, and seeing God’s handiwork in nature.  It has been and continues to be an excellent adventure.  We look forward to where God is leading us and how we can use this to serve Him.
