Encouraging adults to take steps closer to Jesus and mobilizing and inspiring the Hope family to join God in his mission both locally and globally, excites me. Whether it’s working with Community Groups, serving in leadership development, providing pastoral care, or encouraging missionaries, this role allows me to work closely with others and build strong relationships. I’m passionate about helping people follow Jesus, live out the love of Christ, help others know truth, and love well! Growing up in Ecuador as a missionary and pastor’s kid helped me learn that following Jesus is worth the investment of a lifetime! Here’s a little more about me. God has blessed me with my loving wife, Laura, and our three young children; James, Abigail, and Evelyn. I enjoy watching baseball (Go, Cubs!), cheering on the Bears, drinking good coffee, getting out in nature, and spending quality time with friends and family.
