Hometown: Archbold, Ohio

Education: I graduated from Taylor University in May of 2012 with a degree in Exercise Science

Interests: I enjoy spending time traveling and experience life alongside my wife, Betsy. In my free time I enjoy playing golf, watching sports, reading books about nutrition and exercise, and playing with my dog, Stella. I have a passion to help people see the abilities that God has given to them, and help them succeed in what they love.

Testimony: Growing up, I was blessed to be raised by a Christian family. My parents, sister, aunts and uncles, cousins and I would spend a majority of our time around the Church in some way. I grew up understanding scripture, prayer, and what a healthy church family looks like. However, it wasn’t until my freshman year at Taylor University when I truly defined my faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. Since then, I have been blessed with wonderful mentors who continue to shape and mold me into a better husband, friend, son and brother.

Statement of Purpose: My wife and I have carried Matthew 28:19-20 close to our heart which says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” In February 2015, my wife and I took a huge step of faith by stepping away from a place where we felt comfortable, and accepted two brand new roles at SAU. We have trusted that God would allow us to influence students, families, and those that he puts in our path in a Christ honoring way. Spring Arbor University is an extremely welcoming community that creates an atmosphere of comfort, while challenging you to seek Christ as the center of your life.
