You can’t call yourself a Christian without being on a journey, and it’s been quite a journey. I’ll try to keep it short.
I grew up Catholic, turned Pentecostal and graduated from North Central Bible College with a Communications degree. I came back to Catholicism and worked as a producer for 15 years at WCCO and WTMJ Radio. In church life, I went from 7th-grade catechist at Good Shepherd to youth minister at Good Shepherd to youth minister at both Good Shepherd and St. James to youth minister just at St. James. Did you follow that okay? As Community Engagement Manager, I get the best of both worlds, using my communications and ministry experience to attract people to Christ and the Church.
With all the little milestones, I had some big ones: marrying my lovely wife, Corinna, and becoming father to Jason, Josiah, Gabriella, Ethan and Samuel.
And of course, the biggest milestone of all happened just before college, encountering Christ and walking with the Father, Son & Spirit. Thus, the journey began.
