Biographical Info

Born in Fort Wayne right after the Blizzard of 78, I spent my childhood, teenage, and young adult years living in Central Florida. In August of 2000, my family decided to move back to Indiana and in the summer of 2008, I relocated back to Fort Wayne.  Almost 10 years later, I accepted the opportunity to become the Director of Outreach Ministries here at Trinity United Methodist Church.

I am blessed to come from a long line of pastors and missionaries with a Godly heritage that extends back for many generations. Raised in the church, I have many times felt the call to ministry. Realizing we are all called to minister, I have spent the last 15 years working in some way or fashion to bring the Kingdom of God “to Earth as it is in Heaven.” For almost 2 years now, this desire has led my family to the downtown/inner city area of Fort Wayne to reach the last, least, and lost. I like to call them “the ones Jesus misses the most.” I am very excited to be here at Trinity and I look forward with anticipation to see what God has in store for us.

I have been married for 11 years now to my beautiful wife Jessica (She is a Carroll high graduate and Fort Wayne native). We have been blessed with 2 wonderful children-my son Koleson and my daughter Zoe. In my spare time, I enjoy all sports, running, working out, coaching, jazz music, and reading. I also have my own website (www.theprodigalandhisbrother.com) where I enjoy writing about God and all the things I am learning being his son.

Be grateful (1 Thessalonians 5:18) and expect more (1 Corinthians 2:9).
