Mikayla and I have a great passion to teach kids from birth about Jesus! Our goal is to create an environment where they can encounter God, be encouraged through Biblical teachings and become enganged in their ministry!
We both grew up in the Assemblies of God. My family attended Northwest Family Church where I was called to ministry while Mikayla's family attended Bethany Christian Assembly. Her parents served as Worship Pastors until 2002 when they were called into missions. They served in Madrid, Spain and in 2008 Mikayla came back to Washington State to attend Northwest University.
While my wife was at Northwest, I was serving as Creative Arts Directior at Christian Faith Center South in their kids ministry. That is where God told me that I was to stay in Children's Ministry. I attended Vision College for two years and graduated in 2011 with a Certificate in Biblical Studies.
I then came on staff as Children's Pastor at Westwood in September 2011. In 2012 Mikayla graduated from Northwest and her sister and brother-in-law, Spencer & Danika Grant, came on staff at WCC as Youth Pastors that same year. Through Spencer & Danika, I was introduced to Mikayla. In 2015 we were engaged in January and married in August. In December of 2016 we welcomed our first child Michaelyn Marie.
We are excited to serve as Children's/Associate Pastors at Westwood and in the surrounding community!
