What do you do in your spare time? Great question, I have no answer as I have no spare time.

What inspires you? My wife Tracy, her passion as a disciple of Jesus and her love of people.

Why are you in ministry? What emotional reasons? To pass along what God gave me through Jesus, Grace. Love for God and a burden to help others in the darkness.

Who is a hero of yours? My parents are my heroes. I watched them help so many with basically nothing, they taught me what sacrifice and perseverance means.

What is something quirky about you? At one time I was a bouncer and bartender in a biker bar.

What do you do in your spare time?  I enjoy fishing and chillaxing with family.


What inspires you?  To watch others, grow in their walk with Jesus.


Why are you in ministry? What emotional reasons?  I love serving others and love sharing my Jesus even more!  Jail ministry is my passion and I am blessed that I have been given the opportunity to share how God has worked in my life with others.  Although I have never been behind the vertical bars of jail, it took me finding the horizontal bars on a ladder to climb out of the mire pit that I was in!


Who is a hero of yours? I get my servant’s heart from my mom.  I cannot remember a time in my life that she was not there to serve others.


What is something quirky about you? There are several things that I could share but I think the one thing that I am most thankful for is that my husband married his stalker!
