My family and I moved to the Kansas City Metro early in 1999 and started Crossroads Church on April 4th of the same year.  Before becoming the lead and founding pastor at Crossroads, My wife, Sharon, and I started our ministry as student/worship pastors in both Tennessee and Ohio for our first seven years out of college.  I have a strong passion for helping people find and follow Jesus and love to talk about how we can best make a difference in this world using the Bible.  Sharon and I have been married for over 27 years and have four adult children (one man-child, twin daughters and a son-in-law)  who are pursuing Jesus and others all around the world.

I love to hang out in the heart of big cities, go on mission trips, sip good coffee over great conversation with my kids, but my favorite place in the world is at home with my wife.
