COMING SOON - July 1, 2019

My wife and I have been on a journey of following Jesus together since 2004 when we graduated from Cincinnati Christian University.  We helped plant a church in inner city Cincinnati as newly weds.  We were then given the incredible opportunity to be used and grown at Central Christian Church in Arizona.  Over 12 years at this church I learned to build teams in Sports ministry, understand they dynamics of community in Small Groups, discover my passion for Evangelism by leading that department and develop my leadership skills as a Campus Pastor.  In 2016, we decided to step out in faith to help plant Trace Church in Colorado and that's where we discovered the kingdom building heart of Sunnyside Christian. 

Our journey has been one of blessing and heartache.  We have experienced the difficulty of leaving family and friends to pursue our calling, the agony of a miscarriage, and the pain of battling my wife's mental illness.  But we have also experienced the joy of being used by God, the privilege of raising 4 kids that delight and challenge us, and the blessing of not only persevering through mental illness but allowing our pain to be used for purpose.  We are passionate about allowing our vulnerability to help others find their voice.
