Hi, I’m

Athletics Coach

I pioneered Respect The Corners so that we could mentor athletes and challenge them to use their fitness for the Great Commission. 

In YWAM, I have been surrounded by leaders who saw my potential. They challenged me to pursue my God-given dream. They helped me develop Godly character and a strong marriage.

YWAM pushed me to become a spiritual leader. They helped me see how I could use my gift to reach remote villages in the mountains with the Gospel.
