Years at TFC: Fall 1990 – Spring 1994 – BS, Youth Ministries
What you did following college
Immediately following TFC I toured with Camfel Productions, a High-School and Middle-School assembly program ministry, for a year before returning to Toccoa. I married Jessica Vena in May 1996 and over the next seven years worked in retail, at the YMCA, and the Boys and Girls Club.
What you are doing now
In 2004, I began full time ministry and am currently the Lead Pastor at Belgrade Alliance Church in Belgrade, Montana. My heart is to see people know Jesus and fall in love with Him, to care for people within the body of Christ, to reach our surrounding community with the love of Jesus, and serve people any way I can.

I love my family! Jessica and I have four children; Brandon (Junior in HS), Jared (Sophomore in HS), Colby (8th grade) and Isabel (4th grade). All three boys play soccer and wrestle, and Isabel does gymnastics.

I have had the joy of running numerous soccer leagues and clubs, as well as, coaching each of my boys at various levels.
Impact TFC had on your life
I would not be who I am or where I am if not for my time at TFC. To this day, it is my favorite place on this earth. While at TFC, I learned what it meant to be a true disciple of Jesus. I learned how to worship Jesus. I learned what it meant to be part of a body of believers. I learned how to be a leader. Most of all, I developed a passion to see the world come to know Jesus. The friendships I developed at TFC are still the most important ones in my life.
