We are excited for the work God has called us to here at First Baptist Church.  

I came to know Jesus at a young age.  I grew up in a Christ-centered home and saw firsthand what it meant to serve God and the church in watching my parents.  

Katlyn and I met at Southwest Baptist University where I studied Bible and felt called together to student ministry during our time serving with Polk County KLIFE.  We love students and I am blessed that Katlyn is my partner in ministry.  Our passion is to disciple students and equipping students and leaders to disciple others.  

Outside of ministry, we have a daughter, Brielle.  She was born September 13, 2020 and we are so blessed that the Lord has added her to our family.  We love finding new coffee shops and restaurants, hiking, kayaking, hammocking, and exploring the good stuff God’s made.  I personally love boardgames, music, and skateboarding, which is a huge part of how God has worked in me to make me a minister of the Gospel.  

No verse has been more foundational for me in life and ministry than 1 Thessalonians 2:8 

“We cared so much for you that we were pleased to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us.”

The call to go and make disciples is to every member of the body, for the good of the body.
