I moved to Colorado in 2008 with my wife Bethanne and two sons, Fox and Skyler to be the lead minister of Meridian Point Church. I graduated from Great Lakes Christian College in 1991 and had served the Bailey Christian Church in Bailey, MI since 1994 along with traveling widely on many short-term teaching/mission trips to Central and South America and Africa.
I really desire to see the church be more than a social club. To truly be the family of God and be His hands and feet and voice to the world, to help each individual become all that God intends for them to be.
Worship & Arts Pastor
I moved with my family to Colorado Springs in September of 2006. In 2005 I earned my bachelor's degree in ministry at Central Christian College of the Bible in Moberly, MO. While there, I spent three+ years playing lead guitar and leading worship with a traveling worship band called Three Days Under, and since then I've led worship across the nation and internationally.
All in all, my desire is to encourage people to constantly remain in humble adoration of the King of kings--to bring them before the very throne of God in authentic worship that goes beyond the music and song.
I volunteered in the Children's department at Sunnyside Christian since 2000, before joining the Meridian Point staff for its launch.
In May of 2005, I received a Bachelors degree in Human Resources from UCCS. In my free time, I love hanging out with my best friend--my husband David. Somehow I still find time to home-school our 3 teenage daughters, Kristie, Jelissa, and Lakeisha as well as raise our toddler, Darius and our new baby girl, Cynthia.
My desire is to help children learn about our Great God, how much He loves them, and exactly why they were created. What matters most to me on this journey is that I made a difference in the life of a child for the kingdom.
