I’ve had the privilege of serving at MPC since Fall 2016 as the Christian Educator. My responsibilities include the oversight of our Children and Youth Ministries, ranging from the littlest ones in the nursery all the way to our high school seniors. I love that this position allows me to get to know our children and youth in each of our ministries, and watch them grow in their faith all the way to Confirmation and beyond. When I’m not at work, I’m at home with my wife Abby and our dog Misty. I enjoy watching sports, playing board games, and taking the dog for a walk.”
