Life is a journey. Each day we rise with the sun to once again embark upon the adventure of a lifetime... of this lifetime.


My wife Trista and I have been married since 1996 and have four beautiful children: Aliya, Isaac, Levi, and Nora. We live in Jamestown, Michigan, a formerly rural farming town turned bedroom community suburb between Grand Rapids and Holland. Interestingly, my roots are here. My grandparents and great-grandparents were farmers here.

I'm currently the Senior Pastor of Harbor Churches, an evangelical, multi-site reformed church in West Michigan where I first served as Pastor of Spiritual Formation at Fair Haven Church and then was the planting pastor for South Harbor Church.  Formerly, I served as a campus pastor and later senior pastor of University Reformed Church on the campus of the University of Michigan, which is now Grace, Ann Arbor
