I am 28 years old and was born and raised in Fargo and graduated from South where I played baseball, football, and hockey. I was also in band and jazz where I played the bari and alto saxophone. I continued my education at Concordia College, where I earned a degree in English Literature and played football. My first job in ministry came through Luther Park Bible Camp in Chetek, Wisconsin. I fell in love with teaching and bringing God’s word to the youth that summer. The following two summers I worked at Luther Crest Bible Camp. I began working as the youth director for Peace Lutheran Church in North Fargo. On May 28, 2015, I met the love of my life and future wife Kari Stroh. We are getting married at First Lutheran in January. We both love to sing, play guitar, and dance together. I am so excited to be working with the youth of First Lutheran and hope to share God’s light and love with you all.
