Why do you serve in youth ministry?
I serve in youth ministry at Creekside because I feel it is exactly where God wants me to be. I enjoy getting to know the kids on a level that is more than just a "high-five" at the beginning or end of church. I firmly believe that junior high-aged youth are at a pivotal point in their lives and are feeling the pressures of the world every direction they turn. The Exchange is place where kids are reminded of Christ's truths and is also a place where they can remain and grow in Him. As an Exchange leader, I encourage kids to be themselves and openly express their thoughts on anything the world sends their way. What a privilege it is to serve!
What do you like about Creekside?
Like or love? I love the fact that the Gospel is preached openly and consistently and the truths found in God's word is never skewed. I love the community/family atmosphere Creekside offers and the fellowship opportunities Creekside provides. I often wish there was more time between services!!
What are your hobbies?
My family is number one. When we are not running between pre-scheduled events, I enjoy tinkering around the house, hunting, camping, and fishing; pretty much anything outdoors.
What is your favorite place to eat in this area?
My bride's kitchen creations are hard to top. If I am desperate for a meal, a quick trip to In-N-Out can usually do the trick.
