Being a Student Minister is much more than giving a lesson at Youth Group once a week. It is the opportunity to grow closer to students through various activities and encounters throughout the year. This closeness is where we gain the respect of the student and where they allow us to speak into their lives. It is the result of those two aspects that makes delivering a lesson at Youth Group valuable. I am very honored to be in the position that I can grow close to students while helping them grow close to our wonderful Creator. I am also blessed in the fact that my wife and 3 (soon to be 4) great children get to grow in that experience with me.
I believe that God has a plan for each and every one of us and that when we are working within that plan, allowing Him to coach us, amazing things happen. I have been blessed to be a part of God's plan here at DCC for the last 18 years.
Becoming a mom through adoption has allowed me to see a glimpse of God's heart for His children. I believe there is a constant tug at His heart for each and every one of His children to choose Him. I feel privileged to have a small part in the adoption process!
