I enjoy teaching folks about the God revealed through the Word and having an outrageous amount of fun all while leading and resourcing parents and families and other ministry leaders/practitioners.

I’m married to Amanda Mavis and we have two daughters named Sari and Macie. We live in Hayward, WI where Amanda works in real estate @ Woodland Developments and Realty. We have two cats named Callie and Cole, a garden, and a patch of raspberries!

We are deeply committed to biblical community and love engaging with people we know and don’t yet know.

I currently teach at HACIL, which is a virtual charter school in Hayward, WI.

For 16 years I shepherded children, teenagers, and families through Hayward Wesleyan Church.

I also work for A Little Fish, a technology services company that my wife and I started in 2010. We help create websites, personalized email accounts, trouble-shoot technology needs, as well as simple videography.

One of my passions is translating ancient narratives into modern equivalencies and helping students realize their need for the Gospel amidst an environment of honest and relevant learning with hopeful resultant change by the power of the Holy Spirit.
