About My Family

My mother being Army active duty, I moved 10 times growing up. I earned my undergrad degree from the University of Iowa, where I also completed the ROTC program. I joined the Iowa National Guard.

I met my wife at the church we attend and, after a few short months of dating, married in 2019. My wife is in her last year of medical school and hopes to be an ophthalmology resident in the near future. Her parents live in China and mine in Belgium. Home is truly wherever we are, but truly in heaven.

I currently work at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in an administrative role while a full-time student at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, working toward an M.Div.

About My Ministry

I have been involved in ministry in many different ways. I have served as a connection group leader, discipleship group leader, as an international ministry host family, Veritas Kids, and am now mainly focused on ministry within the Iowa National Guard as a Chaplain Candidate assigned to the 109th Medical Battalion as the acting Chaplain.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom chaplains minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Build relationships with chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send cards.
Become personally invested in the ministry of chaplains. Learn about their ministry context, so you can provide relevant help and resources.
