TCOC is led by a dynamic team of servants who are devoted to living out the life of God. We meet together to build a deeper relationship with each other so that we can encourage those in our direct ministries.
Born, raised, and loved by a single-parent Mom in the city of Detroit. We moved to the Downriver area in 1989. I met my beautiful wife, Jessica, in 1996, and we began our family in 1999. I have four exceptional children with whom I enjoy watching movies, reading comics, making art, and playing sports.
I developed a love for all God's people while working in the service industry for 24 years. I left my role as a Zone Vice President of Operations to pursue God's calling for me here at TCOC.
I began my faith journey at TCOC in 2008 and became a Shepherd in 2015. My LOVE for God and TCOC provides me joy and happiness daily. Broken and Repaired. Lost and Found. Wounded and Healed. Because of God's everlasting love, I have been transformed by love to serve. We may not have met yet but be assured, I love you, and more importantly, God loves you.
I grew up in the downriver area and am lucky enough to be married to my best friend, Chris. We have four amazing children and in my free time I enjoy reading, watching movies, working out and spending time with family and our 2 doodle dogs.
I started attending TCOC over 16 years ago because I wanted my children to have a strong foundation in faith.
Now as the Family Minister, I enjoy partnering with the parents on their child's own spiritual journey, and equipping families with tools they need as their children grow.
I am a passionate, energetic, and outspoken follower of Christ. I believe the people of this world have a huge opportunity to love in Christ. My ministry is to instill this basic idea of Christianity - Love God, Love Others!
I love experiencing the Gospel of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection through singing, playing, teaching, and listening. Believing that sharing this gift to the world is a part of who I am is what helps me to uplift others’ spirit in song, word, and deed.
I graduated from Rochester College with a Bachelors in Music Education. I am a lover of Ultimate Frisbee, baking scones, playing with my nephews, the outdoors, and a good board/card game.
