Who has been the most impactful person in your life?

There are many people in my life that have shaped who I am and how I desire to live my life. They all deserve their due. But to choose one I have to give a shout out to BMills, our CO Campus director at Liberty! I met Brandon at a transformational time in my life. The Lord had just opened my eyes to my need for Christ and His atonement for my sin. I was overjoyed, but I had a lot of questions about how to live as a Christian and what it meant to be a leader in Christ. Brandon not only opened the word of God to me to help me understand how I am to live, but he exemplified who the Lord was calling me to become. The track of my life changed completely from meeting Brandon and getting involved with CO!

What is one crazy/interesting fact we need to know about you?

I like to think I'm a pretty well-rounded character with lots of interesting quirks, but there's really only one way I can do this question justice. 2019 marks the twelfth year I've had the privilege of driving race cars. In the famous words of Ricky Bobby, I learned at an early age, "I wanna go fast"! I played normal sports growing up as well, but about all of my serious travel consisted of going to racetracks across the country. I missed something like 32 days of high school for racing. I was a good student, but they were still very generous to let me attend and graduate. 

What is something you are super passionate about?

The Lord has truly placed a desire in my heart to see young men grow in their faith in Christ and to know what it means to find their identity in him. Part of that is recovering what exactly it means to be a man. Our culture has so many evolving views of what that looks like. But what does Biblical manhood look like? How did Christ, in the most culturally confounding way, define what it is to be truly man? He came as a humble servant of the Father to save sinners. As I am learning how to live in a humble, Christ exalting manner, I pray that the Lord might be gracious enough to let me point other young men to his saving work and his example.
