Eager to get involved, he started serving part-time in youth ministry in January of the following year and transitioned to full-time ministry in January 1996. In 2005, he began co-leading as associate pastor until making the full transition to senior pastor three years later. He and his wife, Christina, have been married since 1992 and have three children.
