I grew up in the Seattle area. I have a BA in Philosophy with an emphasis in Religious Studies from Central Washington University and a Master of Divinity from Regent College in Vancouver BC. In 2011 I accepted a call to pastor the Alliance church in Chester Montana, where I continue to serve, and was ordained in February of 2017. In 2018, my wife and I opened The Well Coffee in Chester which operates as a local coffee roasting and espresso shop. My wife (Kelli) and I were married on December 11, 2004, and have 3 children, Joshua (2005), Hannah (2007), and Rachel (2009). I enjoy playing board and card games, barbecuing, precision rifle shooting, and hanging out with friends and family.
