Past Ministry:

Over ten years, I  worked on God’s assignment, by God’s design at Wellspring Church.

After completing Bible College in Christian Music Industry I stumbled upon Wellspring through  interesting circumstances. The band I was playing with performed opening night of Wellspring’s present facility.

Being my final semester of school I pursued a music internship at Wellspring.

To say the least, it didn’t work out. Too many new things at once is understandably the reason. I stuck it out because I knew God was doing something unique in the place.

About four months into attending regularly I started on full-time staff as building and grounds superintendent.

It’s proven to be the best move of my life. While some would call it a step down or at least not a step forward I would certainly say otherwise both then and even more now.

Three years into working maintenance I moved to the interim youth pastor position. I was scared. I was out of my element. I was right where God wanted me to be. Years later I am still here, as an assistant pastor of Wellspring Church, emphasis in youth ministry.

I am excited for what God is doing and will continue to do the next ten years.
