I gave my life to Christ when I was a Junior in high school but I can’t say I lived it out until I came to college. In high school, I did my best to be liked by everyone but the result was that I lost a sense of who I was in my efforts to be what I felt like they wanted me to be. When I came to college what I wanted more than anything else was a group of friends that I could live sold out Christianity with. That is what I found here at Campus Christian Fellowship. I caught on fire for the things of God and dove in headfirst in a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ. My life has never been the same. My life has changed radically and now my desire is to tell everyone I know about how incredible His love and grace is. I want everyone to know that a life lived for Jesus is the best way to live.

What is your home town, and what makes it a unique place to grow up? McCall Idaho. McCall is a resort town tucked away into the mountains of central Idaho. I grew up an outdoors junkie and I still love to get outside today.

What do you usually eat for breakfast? Coffee!! and maybe a bagel

Which super power would you like to have and why? For sure flying because it’s got to be better than walking.

Siblings? Nine of them. Big families are the best.

Wife / Kids? A: My wife’s name is Cassi and we have three kids: Addyson, Bethany and Hudson

Where did you live when you came to college? A: I lived in the dorms for the first two years and off campus for the last two and a half.

What is your favorite spot on the campus you are ministering at? I love The Idaho Commons. There is no better place to get to see a bunch of familiar faces.

What is your favorite place to eat in Pullman / Moscow? Oh, wow….well I love a good cinnamon roll from Wheatberries in Moscw.

Craziest thing you ever saw happen at CCF or CCF event? I have seen a lot of crazy things. I have personally been a part of tackling people through walls, breaking the frames of couches, burst glass light covers, blown speakers, almost run over friends, had my windshield burst into shards of glass, traveled across the states of Oregon and Washington in a one of the worst winter storms in recent history and on and on. We changed a tire on the main highway with our legs sticking out into trucking traffic in below freezing weather. These things and so much more, but what I will always remember is how crazy cool it is to see someone give their life 100% to Jesus Christ.

Why do you believe it is worth investing time and resources into college ministry? It is worth it to invest time and resources into college ministry because there is no more receptive time of life to the gospel of Jesus Christ than in the college years of someone’s life. These students represent a very small percentage of the world’s population, but this small percentage will make the decisions that affect the rest of the world. If you want to change the world, then change college students. The best way to do that, is to reach them with the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
