Why I'm Here
Camp Bighorn was so vastly different from any other camp I had visited. The focus on discipling and using adventure to facilitate spiritual growth really drew me in. My passion is to help prepare the next generation of kingdom leaders through discipleship and intentional interactions.Give to Johnny
I grew up in Camp ministry serving with my parents at a small bible camp in Minnesota, and I get to use a lot of those skills here at Camp Bighorn. I earned a Bachelors in Biblical studies and Youth Ministry, and have spent time working in construction, building maintenance and vehicle repair. My wife Hannah was formerly on staff at Bighorn, and she now works in our local community, occasionally returning to help with projects at Bighorn.
As Operations Director, I am responsible for the care of our facilities, vehicles and grounds.
I am an avid woodworker and enjoy helping people with their vehicles and other projects. Leading worship is another one of my passions because I love to help draw people into a state of worship through music.
