ABOUT ME

I grew up in small town Iowa, playing lots of sports and hanging out with friends and family. I have 4 siblings (Charis, Isaac, Abraham, and Elisabeth). Before my senior year of high school, I moved to Guatemala with my best friend’s family. I spent a year down there before deciding to attend North Park Univeristy to study Youth Ministry. After North Park, I moved out here to serve at BCC!!
