Pastor and Staff
My wife Brandi and I have been married for 19 years and we have three children. We were both born and raised in the Prescott Area. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Northern Arizona University and an MBA in Marketing from Grand Canyon University. It’s a blessing to be the Pastor of The Ridge, where we get to live out our calling. We love to watch The Lord transform the lives of people who trust and follow Him.
I began my job here at The Ridge almost 8 years ago. Ministry has always been an important part of my life. I worked in missions with Wycliffe Bible Translators for 30+ years and then joined Campus Crusade for Christ working with GAiN, their Humanitarian Aid Arm. My job at The Ridge allows me the freedom to participate in several overseas mission trips a year. I have been married over 40 years and have two adult children and one grandson.
I'm 26 years old from Phoenix, graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2015. Simply put, I'm a worshiper who loves being a part of God's creation with the ability to create new things using music, writing, community, and even my life to glorify Jesus in whatever way possible. I don't deserve it, and I never will. If one person can have an encounter with the God of the universe like I have had, then everything is worth it. I guess in summary, I have a huge passion for watching people discover their true identity in Christ, who He really is, and seeing the journey that God takes his people on.
