|I was called into the ministry in 2008 when I was a Managing Director for Northwestern Mutual. However, unaware of it at the time, I was acting like the Rich Young Ruler who didn’t want to let go of his “financial security” to follow Jesus fully. When the Spirit convicted Mindi and me of this, we let go of our “possessions” to lay hold of God’s purpose and plan for us in 2009. My passion is to encourage and equip ALL people to fully follow Christ. I also have a passion for the “marginalized” and those facing oppression, injustice, and poverty. |
Before I received Christ, I was chasing after every fleeting passion and worldly desire. I pursued partying, possessions, positions, and prestige, but none of these things satisfied me. Even though I was successful in business and things looked good on the outside, I was empty and without hope on the inside. I knew there had to be more to life. However I continued to chase after selfish ambitions and worldly pleasures, thinking I’d eventually fill the void. In 2003 everything changed. The Lord, in His great mercy, gave me new birth into a living hope. This decision dramatically changed the direction of my life.
Mindi and I grew up in Missouri. We moved here in 2009 specifically for preparation in the ministry at DTS. However, this body of believers has been instrumental at encouraging and equipping us to live for Christ. We have two girls and a boy: Addisyn, Alivia, and Jeremy D. We love to play games together, go to K-Kauai Family Kamp, and have rapping/singing/dancing performances at the house.
