Deacon Candidate | Director of Music Ministry & Administration
At the end of each Lord’s Day service, the saints of our church sing together the Doxology which begins with the line “Praise God from whom all blessing flow.” As I think on my life, this lyric is exactly what comes to mind. The Triune God, in His sovereign grace & loving kindness, has called me, saved me, made me alive in Christ, and blessed me beyond what I deserve. Truly, I can say with assurance -- praise God from whom all blessings flow!
The Lord has gifted me with my lovely and faithful wife, Madelyn. Our home is full of books, songs, and stories. In the hours when I’m not working at Christ Church, I teach junior high students at a Christian school in Goleta.
At Christ Church, I have the privilege of leading the saints in songs & hymns, managing our communications & website, and assisting the pastoral staff with administration. I earned a Master of Legal Studies with an emphasis in Church & Ministry Management from Trinity Law School, and I’m currently pursuing a Master's degree in Classical Christian Studies through New Saint Andrews College.
It is my prayer that our glorious God would use our ordinary tasks for His extraordinary purposes. Indeed, I long for the day when “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” (Habbakuk 2:14)
