1. What do you do for fun?
I love listening to good music, playing good music, and watching a good movie! What makes all of those things better is if I can do them with the people I love.
2. What is something that most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I love to cook! Specifically things that take a long time, i.e. baking bread.
3. What are three books that everyone should read?
“The Gospel-Centered Life” by Robert H. Thune has and continues to be a deeply influential book in my life. If you’re married or getting married, “Gospel-Centered Marriage” by Tim Chester is crucial. For those struggling with prayer like I have, Tim Keller’s “Prayer” book has had an impact in my intimacy with Jesus.
4. What excites you about The Response Church?
God has blessed all the people in The Response Church with numerous giftings and I am stoked to help develop, disciple and see these people not only use those giftings but grow in intimacy with Christ! It’s so awesome how Jesus has used the Response Church to continually draw me to him and teach me to do for others what he has done for me.
