Apart from working in ministry, I enjoy being with my family. My amazing wife, Brandy, has put up with me since 2009. We have three wonderful children: Journey Sophia (6), Boston Elliot (4), and Lennux Renee (2). I have a blest spending as much time as I can with them!
Besides family time, I like to consider myself a full-on geek and will happily spend hours tinkering or fiddling with electronics of one kind or another, I am an aspiring woodworker, and I have become somewhat of an amateur mechanic through the years of driving affordable (cheap) cars.
I love to read! Science fiction, Bible commentary, History, Social Issues, and Science are some of my favorite subjects to get wrapped up in. My current book recommendation: Divided By Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America by Michael O. Emerson and Christian Smith.
