1. What’s your favorite part of youth ministry?

Seeing students discover their god-given destiny…also there’s a never-ending supply of Cheez-it grooves in the green room.

2. Can you describe your call to youth ministry?

When I was sixteen I recognized that I loved seeing people experience life change in Jesus, and after a year praying over my future I realized why I loved it so much.

3. What’s one of your favorite books (OTHER than the Bible)? Why?

"In a pit with a lion on a snowy day" by Mark Batterson 

The story of Benaiah reminds me that all things are possible with Jesus and that adventure is waiting for anyone who wants it.

4. What spiritual leaders do you look up to and why?

Steven Furtick, Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel 

Their anointed preaching, strong leadership abilities and long tenure inspire me to continue pushing myself to new levels.

5. Best Ice Cream Flavor?

Raspberry swirl (the best I’ve ever had was from Giffords’s in Maine) 

6. Favorite artist?

Hillsong and Elevation. Probably super spiritual to choose worship teams, but I love their vibe and the way they push the envelope musically.

8. Favorite restaurant?

Does Starbucks count? Chinese and Japanese food are my favs.
