There are a lot of things I could tell you about myself, but I'm not sure they would help you know who I really am.
I could tell you that I've been married to "my favorite", Becky, since June 2001 and that God has blessed us with five children. I could tell you about all of the things our family loves to do together. I could tell you that I love to play tennis and hike. I could tell you that I love anything to do with music and am passionate about serving those who serve in our nation's military. But that's not who I really am.
I could tell you that some of my favorite moments happen in a coffee shop or at a kitchen table over a cup of coffee, listening to people tell their story, exploring God's Word and praying together. I could tell you that I'm a husband, a father and a pastor... but that's not who I really am.
I am a child of God: adopted through my baptism, washed with the blood of Christ.That's who I am.
I want you to know that same Jesus . I will do whatever it takes to spend time with you, listen to your story, meet you wherever you are in life, and share with you who you are in Jesus. He is the Savior of world - and that means he's your Savior just as much as he is my Savior. I want you to know it and believe that it is true for you. I want you to live it. I want this truth to change you and how you live your life and how you see life.
That's who I am... and this is my prayer for you and this community.
