I have a deep desire to help other men avoid the path of sexual bondage that I went down and to help equip men with the knowledge they need to stay free from the chains of sexual addiction. I believe that true freedom can only be found in Jesus Christ and the blood He shed for us. As the Central States Regional Group Leader for Pure Desire Ministries, I help churches set up support and recovery groups using the Pure Desire curriculum that helped me find my own freedom. I am also the Director of Purity Ministries at my own church, Grace Church in Eden Prairie, MN. Grace sees about 5,000 people come through its doors on any given Sunday morning. Throughout the week there are 12 Pure Desire groups that meet. I travel the United States speaking at churches, mens groups and conferences. I share my story to help people see the freedom that Jesus Christ can bring if we turn toward Him and away from our sin.

I am a single dad with 3 awesome kids, ages 21, 18 and 16. I’m pursuing my Masters of Divinity with a psychology and pastoral counseling focus at Crown College in the Twin Cities and after that, I will work toward my certification as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT). I live in Chaska, MN with my son and Jake the wonder dog, who is a 10-year old yellow lab.
