I’m a journeyman. I have no idea where my journey will take me, but it is on this road that I continue to find joy. Following the North Star of my God I am attempting to be the best man I can be with the time I have on this earth.
Come trials, come storms, come temptations great and small… I may falter, but onward will I press. These are my trials of joy.

I find myself a nomad of sorts. Although there are plenty of places I could thrive in the professional world, being a substitute teacher, stay-at-home dad, and research assistant for my wife has offered considerably more enlightenment and fulfillment in my life than I can remember experiencing for a long time. Working as a pastor for over 11 years has been one of the hardest yet most joy-filled things I could do with my life. Spending three years as a truck driver delivering campers gave me new insights into relating to people and submitting to a Divine will outside my own. Some may say I’m in the desert. To them I say you have no concept of the very sweet oasis to which God has brought me.
Currently I serve as an Ordained Minister in The Wesleyan Church on loan to the United Methodist Church as the Student Ministries Director at Hanfield UMC, yet another transition I never could have predicted.
God is not done with me. The world has yet more to offer, and I to it. The destination has not been reached. I journey ever onward and upward.
