My purpose is to know Jesus better, and to help others grow closer to him.
As a minister, my mission is to have a life worth imitating and a faith worth considering - to live and lead a lifestyle of worship. As a teacher, my goal is to be a life-long learner and continue to bring effective methods into the arena of discipleship and training, to be relevant to those I teach by speaking their language.
People have described me as a modern day renaissance man due to the wide range of experiences, talents and abilities that serve to build who I am. However, I believe that the blessing of such things is only something that I've been given stewardship of, to contribute to in my journey - and not something I can take credit for myself. As the apostle Paul sought to be all things to all men, in order to convey the message of Jesus more effectively, my goal is to use all the tools at my disposal to bring glory to God and bring people into closer relationship with him. God has blessed me beyond my own merit, and I seek to turn those blessings back to His purposes.
My long-term goal is to continue to raise up and train ministry leaders, equipping them with the proper tools to be effective communicators of the gospel and facilitators of worship through the arts, and continually lead experiential God glorifying worship and community outreach for His name.
