About Our Pastor
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Jess, for seven years and we have four adventurous kids. Jess and I have served in a variety of different ministry roles over the past 14 years, including time overseas. From 2012–2017 I served as the missions pastor at Long Hollow located in Hendersonville, TN.
In spring 2015 we took a cross-country trip to celebrate the adoption of our two boys. On this trip we spent time praying through strategic cities. The Lord had been drawing our hearts to the West for several years for the purpose of planting a church. I’ll never forget the favor and peace we felt on our first visit. It was then we knew God was calling us to plant a church in Boulder, Colorado.
In 2017 our family was commissioned to serve as church planters in the heart of the city. We believe God is at work in Boulder, and we are excited to come alongside and play a small part in the big things He is already doing!
About the Church Plant
The purpose of Pinewood Church is to meet people where they are and point them to Jesus. We believe that the Word of God, illuminated by the Spirit of God, is enough to produce the people of God.
Our prayer is that the church would grow and be a place of shade and refuge for the people of Boulder and that they would truly find rest, community and the hope of Jesus. (Isaiah 55:6-13)
Our strategy is simple, we want everyone to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and make a difference in the world.
