I am a Youth Ministry veteran of seventeen years, and currently serve as a Student Pastor in the metro Atlanta area, where I have served for the last 6+ years. I help equip and encourage Youth Pastors and Youth Workers through the blog and podcast at thelongerhaul.com. My passion is helping Youth Pastors and Youth Workers create a ministry of longevity that they truly love. I am the grateful husband of Sarah and the dad of Emma, Anna, Lizzy, and Jack. I am a speaker, lover of vintage VW’s, and the owner of one “mostly white” VW Beetle.
