I served alongside my wife as Co-Director of Youth and Young Adults at Grace Community United Methodist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana. I am serving in my 17th year of full-time student ministry.
We learned about Lovers Lane by our connection through mission in Haiti as my wife, Sarah, met Pastor Kay Eck. God along with Pastor Stan came knocking on our door and hearts to serve the students and families of Lovers Lane and Dallas, Texas.
To pour into the lives of young people and disciple them in Christ and see them connect, grow and go out and serve God in their lives is the most rewarding work that I can do. I get to be a part of what God is doing in the lives of his people.
Worked as Youth Director in Louisiana, served as Mission Team Coordinator in Haiti (for United Methodist Mission Teams)
It initially began when I met the Haiti Mission team from Lovers Lane in 2013… then when learning more about Lovers Lane, the diverse makeup of the congregation, the focus on missions, the willingness to push the leading edge of ministry, and the commitment to “loving ALL people into relationship with Jesus Christ!”
I treasure the opportunity to serve with students and their families, to walk this journey of faith with them while helping them recognize their gifts, and being part of a team that surrounds teenagers in love.
I was in college. I finished my undergraduate degree in May of 2016.
I have some family that has been part of Lovers Lane for years. I came as a visitor one Sunday morning and fell in love with this church. I started working for our student minsitry shortly after that.
I love getting to work with students and see them learn what their gifts and talents are and use them! Our students here at Lovers Lane teach me so much.
