I'd love to talk with you about partnering on your next youth event. Give me a call or send me an email with a brief description of your event, what you're trying to accomplish, dates and number of sessions.
My journey began in the chaotic world of the foster care system of Massachusetts, bouncing between foster families, group homes and hospitals. By the age of eight, I was raging against my foster families and caretakers because I didn’t understand what was going on. But at the age of fourteen I met a man that introduced me to a church where I met Jesus.
I was sold on the power of music to tell people about Jesus while rapping on the street corners of Boston and surrounding areas. I remember rapping my story of God changing my life when a young guy walked up, pulled out his drugs, took off his gold chains and asked me who this Jesus guy was.
I want my gravestone to read: “He loved God and people well.” The one group of people who aren’t loved well are youth. Most don't understand them; they don’t feel seen. But Jesus sees them, and they need to know that.
I've toured and performed with John Reuben who gave me a chance to share the stage with Toby Mac, Kurt Franklin, Cutlass, Reliant K, Newsboys, Five Iron Frenzy, Pax 217, LA Symphony and more. I have graced the stages of the Dove Awards, Cornerstone, Acquire the Fire, Promise Keepers, SonFest, Alive, Creation East and Creation West. I’ve also spoken alongside David Mahan of Frontline Youth Communications on abstinence and mentoring. I was part of the staff of Vineyard Columbus through August 2014. I started as the high-school pastoral coordinator in 2004 and became the high school age community pastor in 2008. And for ten years I have had the privilege of helping youth come to know and follow Christ.
I’ve been married for 15 years to an amazing woman and I have four great children children - 3 daughters and one son. My family currently lives in Columbus, Ohio.
