After benefitting from the world famous Tom Long ministry as a teenager I came to Heritage in 2002 as a young adult. I knew about the ministry from going to High School with Brian and Tara Cochrane. I fell into an opportunity to teach Sunday School at Heritage for several years and then grew into teaching God's older "kids". The Holy Spirit has directed me to serve in this ministry-I'm woefully unqualified to lead it. I love learning about the depth and breadth of God's love expressed in Scripture. Each time I prepare a lesson I learn more than I teach. I love connecting with God's people on their journey, wherever they are on their journey of faith. I love the power of the Holy Scripture to renew minds, change lives, inspire, and transform. Some of my favorite things outside of church that I enjoy include my wife and three kids, friends, the outdoors, and especially the ocean.
