My beautiful wife Jessica and I have been married for almost 3 years now!
I grew up a pastor's kid and came to know the Lord at a very young age. As I grew up and experienced church hurt I began resenting the church, running from God. I got really good at faking it and acting like I had it all together. As a Junior in High School, I was in a serious relationship with a girl for 2 years and was given a scholarship to go play college basketball in FL. In a span of two weeks I lost the relationship and my scholarship. Through multiple different people (especially my father) loving on me and walking with me through some really difficult things, I fell in love with Jesus, began taking ownership of my faith, and became wildly passionate and called into the mission to make and send disciples. As I was being discipled, it became clear that God was calling me into full-time vocational ministry. So I went to Lancaster Bible College in Pennsylvania and began working as the High School Pastor and later the Young Adults Pastor at a church in North Idaho called Real Life Ministries. I worked there for the past 4 years and have officially returned to Texas to be a part of what God is doing here at CyLife.
