I live in Lake Zurich with my best friend and wife of twelve years, Jen, and our two little ones at home: CJ, our daughter (age five), and Ben, our little man (age three). We also have a daughter in heaven—Molly, who we lost in August 2012, just weeks before her due date. The outpouring of love, support, and prayer we received from VCB during that season cemented our already strong conviction that we wanted to plant our roots deep here.
We’ve been attending VCB since the winter of 2011. I’ve had the privilege of volunteering with Awana Cubbies, serving four and five year olds in our Children’s Ministry once a month during Saturday services, and helping with the Heritage Financial Ministry.
My parents led me to faith in Jesus Christ at age eight, and it’s been my deepest joy to grow in fellowship with Him since then. I’m a walking testimony of the life-transforming power of the gospel in the lives of children! I would count it a great honor to serve alongside CFM’s hard-working leaders and volunteers in pointing VCB’s little ones toward our gracious Lord Jesus.
