What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

Serving the bride of Christ, His church.  Growing in Christ as I grow in loving and leading our congregation. Seeing Christ transform His people in our congregation.

What do you do for fun?

I love spending time with my family. Talking with, watching shows with, and playing board games with my wife, Becca.  Playing games with, reading books to, and being with our kids.  As well as reading, drawing/painting, playing music and sports.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

I love God’s word. It’s really hard for me to pick just one.  Can I just say my favorite book is probably Ephesians? It’s a book I started reading a lot in high school.  I’m drawn to its glorious description of how secure I am/we are in Christ–I was (we in Christ were) chosen in Him before the world was made. I was purchased in Him by His blood. I was raised with Him from the dead. I am seated with Him in the heavenly places. I am joined by Him into the church. I am united with other believers by His Spirit. All (and more) because of God’s eternal purpose in Jesus Christ.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

I enjoy supporting the various ministry teams which allows me to see all the exciting things happening at TCBC.
I also enjoy any time I can make a process clearer and more efficient for the benefit of all involved.

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy hanging out with my husband Andy and our dogs (especially outdoors), road trips to visit family, and curling up with a good book.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Matthew 6:27

This verse calms me at times when I feel anxious or overwhelmed. It reminds me that God is control. I’m not. Worrying does nothing to control the circumstances I’m in.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

My favorite things are first, seeing kids come to know and love Jesus.  Helping families disciple their children into active Christians who walk out their faith is one of my greatest joys. Second, I love to train up volunteers who find new gifts and the joy of serving the Lord.

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy hanging out with my husband and three kids. We like to try out new restaurants. Play four square in our driveway. Go play mini golf or just have fun family game or movie nights. I also love to read any book I can get my hands on and my husband and I like to go axe throwing whenever we get some time alone.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

 Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”  I have had many health struggles since I was a child. I was even told I wouldn’t make it to age 30. I was told I would never get married or have children. At one point God gave me this verse. It is definitely true in my life. God has done the impossible over and over. He is truly the God of miracles.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

I love helping the rest of the staff lead the church, but also I love all of the interaction with the congregation that happens!

What do you like to do for fun?

Currently my favorite thing to do is to watch my daughter explore her new world. Making her laugh is the best part of my day, every day!

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

I was given that verse many years ago. I love the idea that Christ is sufficient for me. Christ says that I can stop striving for more because I have His power, even when I feel too weak.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

I love witnessing the way God changes people as their faith in Christ grows. My role is to provide settings for that growth to happen.

What do you like to do for fun?

Reading, hiking, making music, listening to music, gardening, cooking, watching classic movies, eating good food from around the world, listening to others’ stories, playing with our grandchildren, following the Indiana Pacers, the Cincinnati Reds, and the suddenly good Cincinnati Bengals. There aren’t enough hours in the day!

What is your favorite Bible verse and why? 

The last half verse of Acts (28:31b) reads “boldly and without hindrance.” It paradoxically describes Paul preaching while in custody awaiting trial in Rome, really the opposite of the way we’d describe someone under house arrest. As I worked on a question related to this context for my doctoral dissertation, I was struck with what an apt description that is of so many episodes in Christians’ lives: seemingly bound but in Christ utterly free.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

The variety of jobs that can come along during my week helps keep the job interesting.

What do you like to do for fun?

Any fun that I enjoy involves being with my wife and kids doing whatever we are doing at that moment.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

Exodus 33:18 “Moses said, “Show me your glory.”

The raw intimacy of this encounter, the simplicity of the request, and the depth of the answer is staggering.

What is your favorite part of your role on staff?

The top two things that I enjoy are seeing students enjoying and getting excited about their relationships with one another, and even more-so seeing them engage with and grow in their faith in Jesus Christ.

What do you like to do for fun?

Getting outdoors, playing sports or doing anything active, building or fixing things, singing, watching movies and playing video games, and enjoying the company of other people.

What is your favorite Bible verse and why? 

“Immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down, because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and breathed his last.” -Acts 12:23

Naturally as a middle school boy, we spent a certain amount of time finding obscure, strange Bible passages and events. This one stuck with me though, at first simply because I hate worms and the thought of being eaten by them was a rather terrifying prospect, but in time realizing the full depth of the verse it has become a constant reminder to be humble in all things – giving God all the glory and praise for all that is good in my life and the world around me, never taking credit for myself.
