I am the Family Ministry Pastor at Woodridge Church. I get the opportunity to work with the teams that serve birth though high school age children and students. We work with kids and families because we believe every kid and student is created in the image of God. I believe children, students and families being involved in the church is so important not only to God's kingdom but also to a healthy family life. I'm married to my beautiful wife, Lisa, and I'm very thankful to have her as a partner in ministry!
