I grew up a fairly nomadic life, mostly wandering around Oregon. My father was an incredible pastor
much of my childhood, so I grew up in the church (we spent a lot of time at church, so literally, I grew up
at church). During my several attempts at college, I spent a few years truly doubting God’s existence and
set that whole part of my life aside. Through the unbelievable love of God being shown through a few
incredible people; I learned the God truly loved me, a fact that shouldn’t be so revolutionary, but for me
As a worship leader at redemption, my hope if for this community to fall deeper in love with the God
who so deeply loves us. I don’t believe that worship is merely a service to “recharge” us, but should be a
time to wrestle with, thank, and most of all adore God.
I am married to an insanely brilliant and loving lady named Emily, and we have 2 sons (Elias and Cedar)
that keep us full of joy and lacking in sleep. We love to be outside as much as possible, cook ridiculous
food together, and occasionally build a yurt.
