I’m a fun loving follower of Jesus who can’t get over God’s amazing grace. I enjoy my family and I’m a loyal friend. I like to read, write, golf, and sip a premium ale now and then. My wife (Debbie) is my closest friend. Thirty two years, six kids, and four grandkids later, we still got the heat! I long to live loved by God together with His people, in a way that compels us to love each other well and love our city to Jesus.
My wonderful wife (Katie) and I moved to Boise from Bozeman, Montana in 2015. Since moving, God has created a special place in our hearts for the community at City Church. I am constantly inspired by how God is using this body to advance His kingdom. I enjoy hiking, fishing, hunting and most things outdoors. I also have a passion for engaging culture through music and other creative outlets. I am humbled to be a part of this team and excited to see what God has in-store.
My wife, Stacie, and I moved to Boise from Austin, TX in 2014. I am a Pacific Northwest native and my family loves Boise! With three kids (Knox, Isla and August) we take advantage of Idaho’s beauty and ease of getting into nature. I have a penchant (ahem addiction) for old Volkswagens and shuttling the family into the woods in our VW camper. After studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Idaho and living in Scotland while studying for an MBA at the University of Edinburgh, God opened my eyes to the lack of theological awareness around the intersection of faith and work in the business world. I am passionate about bearing God’s image in the marketplace, using commerce as a means for redemption and restoration. We feel blessed to call City Church home and look forward to helping our community grow in grace and truth.
I am the product of Christian parents, a loving and optimistic father and a sensitive and fragile mom. God saw fit to make me his child about the same time I became a husband to Diane, 29 years ago. We’ve been parents for 26 years and became grandparents this year! I have lived almost half my life now as a believer and if God wants to use me to love on more of his family, I’m excited.
I’m a wife to a handsome man named Caleb and mom to a sweet girl named Rosie. I’m a proud Vandal whose been given incredible opportunities to love families and children in Boise through developmental therapy, teaching, and various ministries. Caleb and I spend our free time baking cookies, playing intense board games, or pretending to be movie critics. We LOVE the City Church community, as God has shown us so much of who He is and how He loves us through the people here.
I have been married to Jacob for 18 years. We have three delightful kids: Marshall, Samara, and Gabe. We love road trips and exploring national parks or hiking to waterfalls. When I have a quiet moment, I enjoy reading nonfiction and baking… OR reading and eating, “two pleasures that combine admirably.” (C.S. Lewis) — I consider ministry to children as the Lord’s calling on my life. It is a great privilege teaching kids about Jesus.
I am a Boise transplant as of 2014, hailing from the great city of Seattle. My wife, Valerie, and I moved to Boise in order be closer to family as well as to seek out a stronger Christian community, which we found at City Church. We have a son, Nathan, who brings us great joy and is full of excitement and energy. When not wrangling my little one I enjoy fly fishing, wood working, tinkering, and many other hobbies including pretty much any outdoor activity. My wife and I have traveled the globe and are always looking for someplace new to explore. It’s great to be part of City Church and I am thrilled to work together with the community to further God’s kingdom in and around our city
