Dedicated to positively impacting youth for Christ through love, relationships, compassion, mentorship, discipleship, Biblical teaching, and community outreach. I feel it is crucial for our youth to gain ownership of their faith and to take pride in their identity in Christ. My prayer is that today's youth learn to live out their faith in their personal life, families, schools, churches, and communities. I do not feel it is the youth pastor who is called to take the place of parental roles in student's lives, but to enhance, support, and encourage both students and parents while working towards the common goal of Christ-likeness. I am prepared to bring 20 years of ministry experience into a ministry where we can link arms and live out the Gospel of Jesus while bringing Him to a broken and hurting world.
