Vocation: I am an electrical contractor and my family runs a farm raising livestock.

Favorite Companions: My wife and two daughters, my life group, and a few high school buddies I have stayed in touch with.

Favorite Adventures: My family and I sold everything and moved across the country a few years ago. This has proven to be an experience that drew us closer together as a family and more importantly to a place of deeper dependence on God and fuller peace because of that.

Favorite Verse/Quote: 2 Corinthian 5: 17–20. “The marker of those that understand the gospel of Jesus Christ is that, when they stumble and fall, when they screw up, they run to God and not from him, because they clearly understand that their acceptance before God is not predicated upon their behavior but on the righteous life of Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death” -Matt Chandler
