|Occupation||Church Planter / Lead Pastor|
|Location||Helena, Montana, United States|
|Introduction||My wife Andrea is my soul mate and best friend, and we have two crazy sons, Andrik (14) and Kellin (9), in whom I am very proud.
Ultimately, I strive to effectively lead this generation and beyond, especially those who are far from God, into a passionate and purposeful relationship with Jesus, exemplified by whole-life worship.
Having been a musician, songwriter and graphic artist most of my life, I have used these skills to encourage faith communities to help people engage in real life encounters with God.
Five years in Helena, Montana leading a worship arts ministry have served as a catalyst to free this generation and beyond to encounter Jesus.
It is why I am pursuing God's vision to launch Encounter, a new Jesus-centered faith community in Helena geared toward unconnected in this generation – those 20s and 30s who have been turned off by church or found it lacking.
