I love Jesus. I love the Gospel. I love how the Holy Spirit is at work in this city. Madison, as a whole, is a multisite church and I serve as Campus Pastor for the body of Christ that meets at the Gerald R. Ford Middle School. We’re called to listen and serve the needs of the school, community, and church body. My passion is to fan into flame gifts-based and team-based vision, ministry, and evangelism!

In 2012, I was commissioned as a preaching apprentice under the leadership of Pastor Brad and Pastor Dave. I am passionate about sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and bringing hope to the lost and hurting. I consider it an honor to do that as a preaching apprentice at Madison at Ford.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel! I simply seek to make God smile in ALL that I do, say and think. It is my prayer that God will breathe His will for the kingdom into all of us, through preaching, teaching, studying, worshiping, serving and loving the community of Grand Rapids. As the Director of Reaching In, I oversee our campus’s efforts around discipleship and administration. My family and I are called to this church and community to love on, encourage and grow other in the name of Christ! [Email]
Madison at Ford is blessed with a wealth of children in our congregation. As essential parts of the body of Christ, these children bring many gifts to the church and to the kingdom of God. As the Director of Children’s Ministries, it is my privilege to work with children’s ministry leaders to enfold and disciple our children with excellence, to challenge our children to grow in their understanding of God, and to help them develop deeply rooted relationships with their heavenly Father.

As the 415 Project Manager I oversee all aspects of the 415 Project, including fundraising, recruiting partnering organizations, leading volunteers, and designing a long-term management structure. Above all I would like to see 415 Franklin St SE be redeveloped as a place of reconciliation, where God is glorified, people are empowered, and positive social change is created and sustained.
