As of July 1, I will begin serving as one of the Pastors at Grace Church, a multi-site church in Cape Coral, FL. I served 15 years in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church. I was ordained on June 10, 2016 by Bishop Jonathan Keaton.
I previously served as the Lead Pastor of Tremont UMC in Tremont, IL; as the Associate Pastor of Canton: Wesley UMC from 2014-2018; as Pastor of Cornell United Methodist Church from 2008-2014; Chaplain of Evenglow Lodge from 2012-2014 and as a Director of Youth Ministry from 2006-2008. I have been married to Brittney since December 2008. We welcomed our first child, Marqui Michelle, in 2014; our second, Selah Katherine, in 2016; and our third, Evangeline Ameria, in 2022.
I love the Chicago Cubs and think Wrigley Field is Holy Ground.
