men's ministry leader

My wife, Kim, and I have been attending Oakwood faithfully since 2008. We have been married since 1993 and have three wonderful children: Colton, Gabrielle and Noah. I have served on the missions committee and as deacon in years past and currently serve with the friendship team, tech team, men’s ministry and as an elder. I work as a CMM programmer and enjoy reading, writing, watching movies, going on dates with my wife and spending time with the kids. I hope to graduate from Moody Bible Institute with a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies in 2017.
