He ﬁnds joy in preaching, teaching, and telling others about the love of God. A few constants for him are directing the youth and children’s educational ministries, overseeing the evangelism and outreach ministries, training up leaders within the local church, and reading books by dead people that most have never heard of . . . while drinking something from Starbucks.

In his free time he enjoys, reading, listening to jazz and folk music, watching the New England Patriots, researching, and spending time with his “righteous fox”, Hannah.
Broken Families: The Church As Restored Family
The communities in which we live and serve are landscapes littered with broken families. They may not always be in our view, but we know they are there. It may be a neighbor, relative, or even yourself who has experienced this firsthand. Whatever the situation, little discourages more than a broken home. How do we reach teens who carry this heartache? How do we engage teenagers who have experienced a broken, or blended, family? How do we give hope to a teen who is hurting?
In this breakout session we will discuss how the Gospel is hope for the broken home. God is a father to the fatherless and sets free the lonely in families. We are called to be that family. The Church is home for the broken. The Church is restored family.
