I was born in Midwest City, Oklahoma, but grew up in Minnesota and am the 2nd of 3 brothers.  I grew up playing video games at the arcade and running around the neighborhood with “the boys.”  When I was 15, I gave my life totally to God and determined to make the lives of the people around me better.  I went to college at North Central University in Minneapolis and met my wonderful and beautiful wife, Cherise, there.  I have two great kids, my daughter Emma and my son Judah.  I have been in ministry since 2000.  I love people, especially teenagers; they are strange but they are really cool.  My family and I moved to The Valley in 2007.  We love our church.  They are so kind and loving.  We’ve made a lot of great friends here.
