After a career ending knee injury, I left competitive curling and have dedicated the last 15 years of my life to loving students. I enjoy partnering with other youth workers to help students come to know and follow Jesus. I am a network facilitator for the pacific southwest for the Evangelical Covenant Church and have been a resource for other youth workers for the past 7 years. I still bring pizza to any and every youth gathering. And now have to run 20 miles a week to burn off the pizza weight in order to keep the love alive with my wife. I love my kids, baseball, writing, and my iPhone, and don’t understand Twitter. For the past 7 years I have served at Marin Covenant Church as the Pastor to Children and Students.

I have the pleasure of speaking and teaching for youth events, youth worker gatherings, and every week to my ministry laboratory known as my youth group. Besides speaking, I have had the privilege to write for a number of websites and journals including faithvillage.com and churchleaders.com, and currently I am a contributor and curriculum writer for youth ministry360. I have authored two books, Holy Parenting and Average Youth Ministry, and in the process of my third.
