I joined the fine folks at Vriesland in December 2018 following 8+ years of service as a Pastor in Central and Northwest Iowa. I hold a masters degree from Western Theological Seminary in Holland and am proud to be a Hope College Alumni.

I have a genuine love for Christ and His church and consider it an honor to walk alongside of brothers and sisters as they seek to live in honor of our Wonderful Creator. I also count it a privilege to shine a light for Christ among those who might be new to or unfamiliar with faith in Christ. 

My wife Rachel and I have three wonderful children: Oliver, Adelynn, and Eloise. When not busy with ministry or family related tasks I enjoy cooking, traveling, reading, music, and the arts.
