Meet Our staff
My lovely wife, Christen, and I have been entrusted with four mostly sweet little children. We honestly love doing things with folks from church, going on “missions” (projects, grocery runs, etc.) and getting together with family. I enjoy almost anything involving new ideas, ball sports, lakes, mom and pop coffee shops, craft root beers, or charcoal grills - especially using said things to build relationships and make disciples. I first thought about pastoring in first grade when I had all of the pastor’s lines from the Lutheran liturgy memorized. As a child, my church’s Awana program was massively formational in my spiritual growth. When I was sixteen years old I started to read the Bible regularly, while also getting a regular job with unchurched people, and I was compelled to share what God was saying with anybody who would listen. God has continued to give me greater opportunities to teach, and lead in various contexts from high school youth group to college student government to summers at a Christian camp to a church plant in Maine to Antigo Community Church. Along the way I studied at Calvary University and Trinity International Divinity School. My dream is to equip every Christ-follower to be a compelling ambassador of Christ toward everyone in their lives.

I am married to Kayla and we have an adorable little girl named Jessa and a handsome son named Cooper. As a family we like to travel, explore, and enjoy the outdoors. I am the type of person that likes to do everything from mountain biking and backpacking, to fishing and motorcycles. I like to work with my hands and love making things better. I originally went to school to be an automotive mechanic and spent 8 years in the Army Reserve as a diesel mechanic. After returning from a deployment in Afghanistan God opened the door for me to start an internship at my church. The internship along with going back to school to get my degree in theological and biblical studies has brought me here. I love middle and high school ministry and am excited to see how God uses me here in Antigo.
