What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I teach 9th grade bible, 11th grade bible, and I am the 9th grade class advisor. I also lead a weekly high school boys discipleship group.
What do you love about your role(s) at RCS?
I am honored to get to study the word of God with high school students every day. There is no greater privilege and higher responsibility that our Lord could entrust me with. This is a dream job for me!
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
RCS Students can freely express their love for God through daily classroom prayer time, weekly study and memorization of Bible verses and worship during Chapel services. They understand that God and our faculty care about them as whole people (spiritually, academically, socially, etc).
How do you inspire your students?
RCS has the unique role of getting to prepare and launch world changers for the Kingdom of God into every sector of society both in the U.S. and worldwide.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I put my personal faith in Jesus and walk of discipleship on display each day. Students will witness me: share what God is teaching me through my own time in his word, own my mistakes and publicly repent, demonstrate my journey of becoming a godly husband and father, etc. I pray students will discover that I am someone who is safe and approachable. I care more about the person they are becoming in Jesus than whether they get an A in my class. I want them to discover that the Bible is not a boring dead book, but an amazing gift which the Holy Spirit desires to make come alive to them.
What is your favorite verse?
Ephesians 6:19 “And [pray] also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel.”
