I grew up with Christian parents, and came to know Jesus as Lord and Savior at a young age. During my time at university God opened the door to serve in short term missions. After studying and working in the field of electrical engineering, I sensed God’s leading into pastoral ministry. I attended Talbot School of Theology, during which time Sara and I married. I have experience working with youth and college ministries, and my family and I moved to Ecuador in 2012 to join the pastoral team at EFC. My ministry passions include preaching, equipping believers to effectively serve God, and working with young adults. We have three children. I enjoy cooking, playing board games, reading, and spending time outdoors.
