College & Young Adult Pastor


I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the body of believers at Riverland Hills as the College and Young Adult Pastor. My wife, Olivia, and I are excited to be a part of the Riverland Hills family, and we are thankful for how the Lord has worked in our lives to lead us here.

I am looking forward to working with our college and young adult ministry teams to connect college students and young adults with Jesus and with one another, grow them to love and worship Him, equip them to lead, and mobilize them to be on mission with God in our city and among the nations.

The Call to Ministry

While in college, I had the privilege of serving with North Carolina Baptists in student mobilization. During those summers, the Lord stirred in me a clear call to serve the local church by teaching, discipling, and equipping people to reach their neighbors and the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Favorite Book

Spiritual Leadership, J. Oswald Sanders or Strong and Weak, Andy Crouch

Favorite Book of the Bible

The Gospel According to John comes to mind, simply because it offers such a clear picture of who Jesus is. I might also say Ephesians, because of its clear message of redemption in Christ alone and the unity of God’s people to one another in Christ.
