Ministry: Baptist Student Union
Lead Campus Missionary
Mission Statement:
We are a family of servant missionaries commissioned by God into the world.
Tell us about your journey to becoming a Campus Missionary:
The Lord called me to college ministry in 2010. I had met Matt Kearns when I was in a ministry for 12 years. I called him which ended with a drive to Hannibal, MO to discuss being the campus missionary on Missouri State’s campus.
What do you love about doing ministry on your campus?
I love getting to talk to students and meeting them where they are. I also enjoy getting to pray with fellow campus ministers.

Tell us about yourself and your family:
I have been married to my wife Christen since January 1, 2005 and we have three kids; Ree, Isaiah, and Jude. I love to read books of many kinds. Favorite authors include: God, Bill Hull, Tim Keller, Nicholas Sparks, and Harlan Coban. I also love to camp and fish.
What do you hope to see happen on your campus/within your ministry in the next few years?
Our hope is to see students resist the temptation to be consumers and really embrace the call of the church as we see in Scripture. We hope that the result of this will unite campus ministries, better define the mission, and see many students experience life change spiritually.
What are some of the things your ministry does?
The best way to connect with our ministry is to be an active participant in our LifeGroups. The LifeGroup is our gospel community that usually involves a meal and discussion. Also, you can connect with us through our website:
