It was a 2006 Pointe Church mission trip to El Salvador that radically changed the trajectory of my life!" God placed a lasting impact on my heart and ignited a passion for mission on that first international trip. My wife, Kristen, and I have been blessed to be a part of the Pointe Church from the early 2006 days at the Rave Movie theatre.I was born and raised in Fort Wayne and attended Valparaiso University as a Division One Baseball Player and Marketing Major. It has been a blessing to serve on the The Pointe Church staff as well as serve as CEO of World Baseball Academy. Most of my career has been involved in youth development and nonprofit leadership. Throughout the years my heart has always gravitated towards local and international missions. Kristen and I have three children: Isaac, Eli, and Ava. We enjoy being involved in our children's activities, traveling and family movie nights! My favorite drink would have to be an ice cold Pepsi and my favorite snack is cheese & crackers.
