My wife, Priscilla, and I both grew up in Colorado. We met on our first day of kindergarten in 1987. We started dating our junior year of high school and were married right after we graduated from college in 2004. In 2006, I became the youth pastor of my home church, Highlands Baptist Church. We moved to Castle Rock in November of 2008 to pastor the struggling congregation at Harvest Baptist Church. As the church began to grow, we found so many broken and hurting people in our community. Because of this I began pursuing a master’s degree in biblical counseling from The Master’s University in Santa Clarita California. Over the years, God blessed us with four girls, Karis, 11, Talitha, 9, Natalie, 8, and Brooke, 6.
Starting a church
Crossway Bible Church was born out of Harvest Baptist Church on April 8. In 2017, Harvest sold the building on Gilbert Street. The sale of the building has given us the financial freedom to invest in reaching out to our community. We moved out of our building and re-planted as Crossway Bible Church in the Founders Village Ridge House.
We meet every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Our vision is to make Christ non-ignorable in our heart, home and neighborhood. Our mission is to glorify God by igniting a passion for Jesus in all people. We are committed to worshiping God passionately, connecting with one another authentically, growing to know God deeply and to go show and tell the gospel boldly. As our church begins this new adventure we are studying the book of Titus.
It has been a long but rewarding path. When we came to the church in 2008, things were very difficult. There were many struggles. I thank the Lord often for the church’s patience as I grew and learned. I have a developed a passion for discipling families to worship, love and serve God in the church and in our community. We have developed many close relationships around our kitchen table as we counsel, disciple and fellowship with the visitors and members of our church. Watching these men and women struggle, grow and thrive as gospel witnesses has been extremely rewarding.
Camping close to home
Our family enjoys camping, hiking and generally spending time in the Colorado Mountains. Our favorite place to go is just outside of Castle Rock in Rampart Range. We have two Australian Shepherds that we bring along with us named Roxy and Tahoe. In my free time I enjoy working on and riding dirt bikes.
“So, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him (2Cor 5:9).”
