Renovate is a word that captures my life and mission. When Jesus came into the world, He announced a message that was all about total renovation of our lives, communities, and world. He invited us into that mission of renovation.
I am a husband to Kelly, father of three boys, disciple of Jesus, pastor, musician and hiker. Currently, I am employed as the Senior Pastor at Eastbrook Church (Milwaukee, WI). Before that, I was the Associate Pastor at Brooklife Church (Mukwonago, WI), which I helped to plant from Elmbrook Church (Brookfield, WI), where I had previously served for five years as the Collegiate Ministries Pastor. I graduated with a Masters in Divinity from Northern Theological Seminary and a Bachelors in English and Christian Education from Wheaton College (IL).
