Let's Get Acquainted


Snap Shot.

I’m a Christ follower, husband to Jen, father to Asher Jaxon, Pastor to Cultivate Church, and pursuer of life on purpose. I love all things tech, video production, my dog Charlie, and late night work sessions.

In Detail.

I gave my heart to Jesus at the age of 5, became active in ministry as a teenager speaking to groups of all ages, and traveling with band 3 Driven Nails. At 18 I began serving in full-time ministry and served a total of 10 years as a student Pastor at two different churches. I planted Cultivate Church in 2012 and have a heart and passion for encouraging other Pastors and leaders who are facing burnout and discouragement.



The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I have been filming and editing since I was a teenager. I love to capture and tell stories through video production. To see some work visit


Video production for business, ministry, and more. 


With nearly 20 years of full-time ministry experience, I love to share what I’ve learned along the way. I am passionate about helping you develop a strong ministry foundation with systems and structure, helping you develop teams and leaders, and teaching you how to stay happy and healthy in ministry.

People ask me, would you rather be feared or loved, um easy, I want people to be afriad of how much they love me.
