I have invested nearly 28 years serving marginalized youth and families in Denver, CO and Dallas, TX. My faith journey began at a Young Life camp when I was 16 years old. I was born and raised in Denver’s inner-city and grew in my faith journey through an after-school outreach ministry called Neighborhood Ministries. After marrying my wife Andrea in 1990, I began to lead the outreach programs for the children and youth. In 1997, we sensed an opportunity in Dallas Texas and moved there to start Cornerstone Community Ministries. We were commissioned and supported by South Fellowship in this move. This grassroots ministry served a marginalized community in Dallas from 1997-2009.
In 2009, my wife and I moved our family and ministry back to Colorado to serve youth in the Denver area. Once back in Colorado, we joined the body at South Fellowship and have been involved in several small groups, served in the children’s ministry department and assisted with two youth trips to summer camp in Oklahoma and to one short term missions trip to Chicago.
I am passionate about meeting the relational, emotional and spiritual needs of youth and families. Andrea and I have two adult sons, Jeremy and Andrew, and a daughter, Alyssa, who is just entering high school. We recently joined Club Mimi and Pop Pop when our first grandchild Elijah made his appearance in the fall of 2020. We are close to extended family and are always looking for an excuse to host a BBQ or head out for a hike in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
