In the summer of 1996 I discovered the font of life…a person…who called me to surrender my life in order to receive His! I strive to live each day in response to this profound encounter and continue to receive from this endless font of mercy and love.
In 2003 I began working for the church as a full-time youth minister. I was able to start a youth group from scratch and build it up to what most would call a successful youth ministry program. From my perspective though, I desired so much more for the parish, for the young people and families involved, and for the church in general.
In 2010 I was hired by the Diocese of Sioux Falls to serve as the Director of Youth Ministry. Since then I have spent my life in a role of formation and consultation to parishes within the diocese and as a consultant to dioceses and parishes across the country.
