I grew up in the rural midwest. For years, I called Indiana home. I did what most mid-west kids do; got lost in cornfields, made tree houses in the middle of the woods, and caught lightning bugs in mason jars. Even though the silent fields of Indiana hold a special place in my heart, I knew that there was more that I needed to explore. When I was 18, I packed up my things, and moved to San Francisco.

What has happened in the years since is something I’ll never get over.  When God says He is “able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine,” He’s not kidding. I’ve learned that firsthand.

I now call San Francisco home, where I am a pastor at Canvas SF, a church in the Marina district of San Francisco.

I take pleasure in the simplier things of life, like black coffee, a new pair of boots, or a solid wifi connection. But more than anything, I long for people to know, love and create in the image of our Creator. 

Glad you could stop by.
