Leading a church is an adventure. Our adventure in Gig Harbor began in July of 2007 with a turn-around church. The church is much different than it was then. Though change is rarely easy, it has been good and necessary. Our best days are in front of us. I love my big family, sports, muscle cars, a good Netflix series, a good book, working on our house, and family vacations.
Besides spending time with my seven amazing kids, I enjoy a good story, walking, and podcasts. I love working alongside my husband and being a part of a growing community of people. Chidlren's ministry is a passion of mine because I want our kids to know that Jesus loves them and our church loves them. They deserve to have a great church experience.
Seeking, hearing, innovating, and executing are my passions. I love to seek and apprehend what God is doing, being a part of that and the movement of His Kingdom.
I'm passionate about growing, ministering, and reaching out together. My heart is to see us continually transformed through spiritual growth; to see us engaging in and expanding our areas of ministry and influence through our passions and gifts; to see us moving forward together into areas of community engagement that bring Jesus to a world that needs Him.
Pastor of Youth and Groups
Life with Jesus is a journey like no other! I love getting to watch Him work in our church community to spark new growth and vision. Kelsey and I have been married since 2017 and love any chance we have to do ministry together. We both grew up in the Bellingham, WA area and now call Gig Harbor home. I graduated from from Western Seminary with a Master's of Divinity and Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor's in Communications. Outside of ministry, I enjoy skiing, hiking, photography, LEGO, and all things Star Wars (minus episode 8).
If you call our office, I'm the voice on the other side of the phone. My two loves are backpacking and boating.
