What Genesis Means To You

While I am new to my position, I am not new to how Genesis Church is on mission for Christ.  My wife and I started attending a local community small group about five years ago and since that time have been involved in being on mission with the church.  It was a little over two years ago that we started attending youth events and conferences as chaperons.  Genesis has made a major impact on my life and we are excited to plug in to the church body.

What You Enjoy

My wife and I enjoy taking vacations as well as other small getaways.  We enjoy jumping in the car and taking a drive through the scenic route.  Playing games and hanging out with our friends and family are very important to us.  Spending time with and attending sporting events for our nieces and nephews is something we enjoy as well.  We are committed to serving our community.  I also am the Co-Coordinator for a local Junior Volleyball Program.

Where You Grew Up and What You Did As A Kid

I grew up in Lonedell. MO.  I attended grade school at Lonedell R-14 and high school at St. Clair R-13.  While in middle school and high school I was involved in many different extracurricular activities like volleyball, basketball, Honor Society, Student Council, among many others.

Hope For Genesis

My overall hope for Genesis is that as a church we can continually be on mission, serving those in the community around us, while providing a place for people to be provided both truth and grace.  As a church, our hope is to share the gospel and live our lives that are focused on Christ, through our service and love to others.
