Hometown: Spring Arbor, MI
Education: I graduated from Spring Arbor University in 2016 with a double-major in Philosophy and Communications.
Interests: I love hanging out with friends and family, eating good food, and playing tennis! I spend much of my time with my lovely wife, Shari. We try to stay active by any means, whether that’s hitting the tennis courts or spending time walking outside. I really enjoy sharing good fellowship at church and worshiping with the body of Christ.
Testimony: Growing up in Spring Arbor, I was surrounded by a predominately Christian atmosphere. I went to youth group at Spring Arbor Free Methodist and church every weekend. However, it wasn’t until my late teens that I started to understand what an active Christian life looked like. I began to make my faith my own as a Senior. But it truly wasn’t until my time at SAU that I realized the active Christian life takes a lot of practice. Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord of my life was the beginning of a path that has challenged me and shaped me into the person I am today, but I am learning more and more each day how to embody Christ-like virtues.
Statement of Purpose: To echo my testimony, I believe that as a Christian, I am called to strive to reflect the image of Christ every day. I have been shaped by SAU’s concept in that I try to view Jesus Christ as my perspective for living. And as a member of the body of Christ, work to bring the Kingdom of God here to this Earth.
