Todd grew up in the Church. Literally in the church since his mom was the church secretary, and his dad was a youth leader and part of the elders for most of his childhood. Spending every sick day or vacation day at the church taught him more than just where every hiding place in the church was, but also taught him the importance of serving in the church. In college at Roberts Wesleyan College where he studied Mathematics and Education, and of course where he meet his beautiful wife Erin, he heard the calling to go into full time ministry as a vocation. He started his ministry journey with Erin by his side at Youth for Christ and now that journey continues almost 25 years and three churches later to here at Living Hope. Todd has a love for teaching, preaching, coaching, and using his hands to create things to help people enter into worship. In his spare time, Todd can be found on the sideline of a soccer field coaching, enjoying the outdoors with Erin, and their grown sons Tyler, and Toby or puttering around his woodshop building the new thing from Pinterest.
