I grew up in Mishawaka, Indiana (near South Bend), which I fondly call the “great white north” since it gets SO much snow! I graduated from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and have spent the last 26 years in ministry as Worship Pastor, Administrative Pastor, and now Lead Pastor.
My wife and I have five children. Two of them are married, and one of them has given us 3 beautiful grandchildren. I enjoy taking trips with my wife, watching movies, and playing golf!
In 2010, our family moved to Bartlesville and I became the Lead Pastor of Christ Community Church. The last 5 years has been a great time of personal growth, as well as spiritual and numerical growth for our church. We have seen so many lives changed by the Gospel! My passion is to love and lead people to take next steps to find and follow Jesus! I love preaching and teaching God’s Word because I believe it has the answers that people are looking for in life.
