What do you do at VCC?
As Lead Pastor of VCC I truly love seeing people find their place in the Kingdom of God. There is nothing I love more than helping people find Jesus, and then community and a place to use their gifts for the Kingdom of God. I believe this is when people truly flourish in who God has made them to be. This could be in the Market Place or in the Church. God puts us in strategic places for his purposes to see His Kingdom come to earth.
Tell about your family:
My super-hero wife Wendy is the true Texan in our family. Without Wendy I am in trouble. Wendy and I have been married for 27 years. We have two beautiful children that we love so much, Elisa who is 13 and Max who is 11. We love to swim together, play board games, and go to amusement parks.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to build things. I do carpentry for decompression and fun now, but at one time it was a trade. I also love to play guitar, run, hunt, fish, and golf. Just about anything outside!
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio on the Northwest side in a little township called Colerain. Well, it was smaller then. It was a beautiful place to grow up, especially in the Fall. It is the only place I have been in the United States that celebrates High School Football as much as in Texas.
What brought you to Texas?
We came to Texas on July 18, 2012 to plant this church and we have never looked back. God is doing so many amazing things here, and in the people of this church.
What is your favorite thing about Texas?
My favorite thing about Texas would have to be the people and the culture. In a lot of places, Texas still has a laid back, small town feel. People are sincere and neighborly. As far as the food goes, do I have to say anything more than BBQ and Tex-Mex?
