Student Pastor


Greetings friends!

I am a graduate of Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa where I received my bachelor’s degree in business administration/marketing.  Ministry began for me in 2010 as a Youth Director in Bismarck, ND at Bismarck Community Church.  In December of 2012, I accepted a call to Harrisburg, SD to serve as the Youth and Family Pastor at The Connection, which later became known as Arise Church.  Now my wife Heidi, daughter Raelle, son Ezekiel and I have trusted in God’s call which has brought us to Meredith Drive.  Our journey as a family has certainly been one authored by God!

As a disciple of Christ, I am very passionate about discipling youth.  To me this means walking alongside of, in front of, and behind them in the various aspects of their life.  My passion is to help them grow to become followers of Jesus Christ, as I desire to see them take ownership of their spiritual journey and truly claim their faith as their own. 

God is good, all the time.
