What leads you to be a coach?

God has blessed me to be a blessing. My time in the service has left me with an insatiable desire to teach, train, and equip. Though not in the Army anymore, I am still a soldier who wants to equip others for the battles of this life.

What do you like best about it?

Coaching is an opportunity for God to make something good out my pain as He ministers through me to other broken and hurting people. I love being able to empower others to gain victory in Christ just as I have.

How do you recharge on your days off?

Spending time in communion with God in nature is my power source. Alone, with my wife and kids, or with friends, it doesn’t matter. 

What are your three favorite things?

Spending time with my kids, hiking tall mountains, and reading.
