I grew up and spent all of my life in Marysville. It’s my home, and I feel so blessed that I’m able to serve the community where I grew. I have called The Grove Church my home since I was 16 years old. My first visit to the church was because a friend invited me to the Youth Group. I made so many friends who I’m still friends with today! Later, I met my wife Kiersa at The Grove Kids Fall Carnival.  Funny story: I liked her, but she put me in the friend zone for a while. It took some work, but she finally decided to date me and we married in May of 2017. I started serving in Grove Kids Ministry when I was 17 and realized quickly that God had called me to minister to young people. I have served/worked in student and kid ministry ever since. I love being given the opportunity to positively influence kids’, while showing them how much God cares for and loves them. My biggest passion is letting people know they are noticed and they belong! When I’m not at church you could probably find me out golfing with my friends, or going on fun adventures with my wife!
