I grew up in rural south-east Iowa in the home of a pastor, and I was homeschooled from K-12th grade by my mother. When I was a child, I was saved at a children’s service at our local camp meeting, the Iowa Holiness Association (IHA) camp meeting in University Park, IA. When I was a teenager, I was sanctified wholly in an evening service at IHA.
After graduating from high school in 2011, I and my twin brother moved to KMBC. There I earned a BA in Religious Studies with an emphasis in Christian Ministries (specifically, Communications with Christian Education). Also, I worked part-time in the IT department all four years.
After graduating from KMBC in May 2015, I joined the staff continuing my work in the IT department. I also served as a Teacher Assistant in two classes (CS201 “Basic Computer Literacy” and ED322 “Media Methods”). Also, I served as the Program Manager of Mountain Gospel Radio from 2015 until August 2021.
In August 2021, I resigned from Mountain Gospel Radio and reduced my responsibilities at KMBC to attend Asbury Theological Seminary full-time. Currently, I am earning both an MA in Theological Studies with an emphasis in Philosophy & Apologetics and a ThM in Theological Studies. Lord willing, I plan to graduate with both degrees in May 2025.
From August 2021 to August 2023, I continued serving in the IT department while teaching some classes at KMBC. Then, in the fall of 2023, I accepted the position of registrar and resigned from working in the IT department.
Today, I continue to teach multiple classes at KMBC while serving as the registrar and attending Asbury Seminary as a full-time student. After I graduate from Asbury Seminary in May 2025, I plan to teach more classes at KMBC. Christian education has made an indelible impact upon my life in many ways, and I wish to serve others by teaching them the truths of God’s Word!

“Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end.” – Psalm 119:33
