Welcome to Cornerstone Junior High!

On the surface junior high students are like cans of energy drinks. They’re bright, loud, and able to go from zero to 60 in three small sips. Yet, on the inside students are filled with excitement, curiosity…and they’re still filled with energy. At Cornerstone Junior High, we care about junior highers where they are for who they are! We want to create an environment of excitement, fun, and energy because that’s what junior highers want! Yet, most importantly we always point them to Jesus in real, relevant, and innovative ways. We hope your junior higher will be able to make new friends, learn more about Jesus, and live it all out as a junior higher!

I have this crazy love for junior high students especially when there’s this perfect combination of energy and knowing Jesus’ love! Energy and Jesus? Yeah that’s kind of me. I’ve been doing youth ministry for more than 12 years and pretend I’m super smart with a masters degree in theology from Fuller Seminary. I’m also a father (and foster father) of four: Kiley, Bella, Eddie, and Carter!

Junior High students are my jam! I love this crazy adventure that God has called me to! My heart is for our students to know that there is a God who loves them like crazy and that they have a place where they belong at church. I believe in the importance of community in the body of believers and helping students find their place in that community is the best part of my job! I love Jesus with all of my heart and am so blessed that he has given me my fabulous husband (14 years later and we still like dating each other!) and two of the cutest tiny humans I know, my daughter Haven and son Jackson. I can’t get enough of dark chocolate, good coffee and any opportunity to travel! Swing by CSJH to say hello, I’d love to meet you!

I have a child-like faith. Not like spiritual immaturity, but in the sense of when God calls – I run to him with open arms. When God called me to intern at Cornerstone Junior High, I had to make the choice of giving this my all – or not doing it at all. Here I am, I’m fully devoted to this ministry and passionate about the growth of our Junior-Highers in their walk throughout life. With energy, love, and faith I plan to help lead these students to new heights in their preparation for their future.
