How has God brought you to where you are today?

God’s continued to call us to different roles within Young Life in the Chicagoland area. Recently, as I graduated seminary (finally!) the Lord put it on my heart that I was not leaning fully into my giftedness and I was, for lack of a better term, settling in the comfort of my current role in Young Life as the Area-Director of RB Young Life. The Lord called me to a new position, Associate Regional Director shortly after realizing this. In this new role, I am less comfortable, I travel more, and I get far less back-pats. BUT! The Lord is using my efforts to oversee, care for, train, and pastor Area Directors in the Chicagoland area. I’ve said that this new role is multiplication to the Kingdom, less direct addition but more developing those who do the addition.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

In the immediate the Lord is at work in my marriage and my soul. He is helping me to be more honest and open with Carrie about all aspects of my life and helping me to see that I don’t need to “hold it all together.”

How does your partnership with Calvary help you be more effective in your work?

Knowing that I have people praying for me is the biggest help. And then on Sunday to have these same people come up and care for me, and not just want updates on ministry, is huge.

How can people stay connected with you and your ministry, e.g. email newsletter, blog, social media?

I send out a monthly newsletter the first Friday of each month for anyone who would want to follow along. If you would like to be included, email me at .
