About My Family

Elizabeth and I got married May 15, 2004. The two of us moved from Texas to Colorado in July 2008 to begin Christian Challenge at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), the ministry we lead to this day. Since that time our family has grown from two to five. Nathan was born in 2009, Aaron was born in 2011, and Sarah was born in 2015. We are completely overwhelmed by God’s goodness and faithfulness toward us, and we consider it a privilege to reach college students as a family.

About My Ministry

We are collegiate/university missionaries serving the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), a campus of more than 12,000 students. We have been leading Christian Challenge at UCCS since the fall semester of 2008.
Christian Challenge is a campus ministry dedicated to challenging believers to be intentional about growing in their faith in Jesus Christ and to challenging unbelievers to be open to the belief that the Bible is true and Jesus is who He says He is. It is obvious that God is working in and through Christian Challenge at UCCS, but there are still so many students on our campus who do not know Jesus. We strongly believe that our calling to this campus is long-term, and that’s why we need people like you to come alongside us so that we can continue to do the work we have been called to do.
If you would like to find out more about how you can help support our ministry at UCCS, please contact us at We would love to have you share in this journey with us, so please be sure to look through the section labeled "Participate."
