WHAT DO YOU DO AT ASSURANCE?

I love preaching, teaching and working with the amazing Assurance leaders, staff and servants. I especially love visioning alongside the wonderful people of Assurance for the immediate and long-term future of the church.

WHEN DID YOU BEGIN TO SERVE AT ASSURANCE? 

I began at Assurance in July of 2016.

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

The first and most important answer to that question is Jesus. He is the very reason we all do this wonderful thing called church. I am also inspired daily by my wife, Susannah, and the amazing people of this church.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?

My son makes me laugh more than anybody with his goofy and fun personality. He truly has a great sense of humor.

FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE OR PASSAGE? 

"The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." -Galatians 5:6

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERISTICS OF CHRIST?

My favorite characteristic of Christ is his ability to love in all situations in a completely selfless way. His life’s story is the greatest story ever told, and that sacrificial life is the inspiration for our lives. As the Apostle Paul says in his letter to the Philippians, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.”
