How Your Program Is Unique:
I get to teach students not just from an academic perspective, but from a lifetime of experience working in businesses, ranging from publicly-traded corporations, to tech start-ups, to ministry. My hope is that students who learn in my courses will leave with more than knowledge. My hope is that they will be inspired to listen for God’s voice in the decisions they make, that they will be open to His leading in their vocations, and that they will leave Crown with practical skills they can apply as they work and serve in the vocations to which God has called them.

I trusted in Jesus as my savior at a young age, and was fortunate to grow up in a home with loving Christian parents. The thing that continually amazes me, though, is that with God, there is always “more.” I am still growing and learning to be more like Jesus. I am consistently humbled by the depths of His grace. My biggest desire is to keep following Jesus faithfully, and to see the evidence of the Spirit blossom in my life, so that I can reach more people with the love of Jesus Christ.

Favorite Bible Verse:
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going (Hebrews 11:8)

Before Crown:
I’ve been a business development exec for a publicly-traded tech firm, and an entrepreneur for successful start-up firms. Most recently my calling has been as the senior pastor of Resonate Community Church in Shakopee, Minnesota.
