In Addition …
Campus ministry is an exciting place to be. In addition to the
relentless energy of college students, working with the Student Life
staff ensures never a dull moment. My responsibilities include planning
chapel services twice a week; planning for and hosting visiting
agencies and church leaders; and supervising student ministry
assistants who lead Bible studies, Campus Worship, hymn sing, and Peace
& Service club. Working with these students is one of the
highlights of my role. Through their work and the ministry of the Holy
Spirit I hope and pray that Hesston College will grow in relationship
with the triune God of grace as individuals and as a community
throughout this year.
I also have the privilege of serving as
assistant Cross Country coach. As an avid runner I have lots of
experience (collegiate track as well as road races from one mile to
marathon and everything between). This is a new role for me this year
as it is our inaugural season for men’s and women’s cross country.
I graduated from Eastern Mennonite University (Harrisonburg, Va.)
in 2001 with a BA in Culture, Religion and Mission. I am pursuing a
master's in Christian Ministry through Friends University in Wichita,
Kan. I grew up in Kidron, Ohio, and have lived in Kansas since 2001.
Seven years of youth ministry and one year in a bookstore helped to
prepare me for campus ministry when I started at Hesston College in
2008. I live in Hesston with my wife, Julie. We enjoy entertaining
others in our home, collecting eggs from our backyard chickens, and
playing games (especially Settlers of Catan and euchre).
My door is always open.
