"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ." Ephesians 4: 15

I have served in Christian schools in North Carolina (Terra Ceia Christian School) and Minnesota (Southwest MN Christian High School) since 1995 as a teacher and principal. I received bachelor’s degrees from Trinity Christian College (1995) in Palos Height, IL in Communications and English with a concentration in teaching. I then received a master’s degree in school administration from East Carolina University (2001) in Greenville, NC. I am working on a doctorate in educational leadership from St. Thomas University in Minneapolis, MN.

Rachel, my wife, and I were married in 1998 and have 5 children. Our oldest daughter, Tyesha, has graduated high school and lives in Lafayette, IN. Our twin sons, David and Devonta, are 14 and are 8th graders at LC. Eli is 12 and is a 7th grader, and Abram is 7 and is in 2st grade. We look forward to being part of the Lynden Christian community.

In life and in leadership, I feel it is important to be truthful and loving, together, mutually.

I am passionate about Christian education and the truth and love that it brings to the world enhancing the Kingdom of God.
