I grew up in Evansville and met my wife, MaryBeth, while we were attending a Bible study after college. We joined FBC in 2003. My wife and I started YDM, the youth ministry at FBC, in 2004 which continues to flourish today. MaryBeth and I have three boys, Brent, Owen, and Eli. I enjoy golf, playing sports with my boys, woodworking, rooting for the University of Missouri, and flying airplanes.
My favorite books are Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands by Paul Tripp, Trusting God by Jerry Bridges, and The Complete Husband by Lou Priolo.
This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10
