I've come to realize that caring for people, especially those who haven't been as fortunate as me, is one of my top priorities in life. I have a passion for service oriented missions work, homeless ministry, ministry to at-risk youth, and donating my time and money to other such causes.
Some of my hobbies include most outdoor activities, working out, traveling, the arts, anything related to nature / science, and cooking healthy and local food. Ideal trips would range from tropical beach bumming to frigid Alaskan salmon fishing or European touring.
Deep political and religious discussions that keep in mind the value of multiple viewpoints, reading challenging and inspiring books, dry humor, movies, and solving all the world's problems are also some of the things I enjoy most.
Thankfully, I have a challenging, purposeful, fulfilling, and amazing job. I love people, and the best part of what I do is seeing hope restored in the midst of struggles and suffering. I have experienced success through God's grace in my ministry, and I have a bright future as a pastor in the United Methodist Church.
It has taken a lot of education and hard work, but I am ready to share my life with someone else and begin a family. I know there are amazing future possibilities of where God might take my life, and I hope to continue being a person of empathy, vision, charisma, and faith - the foundations that keep me moving forward through all the challenges of life..
