Your Purpose. Our Mission.

God changed my life here at CSU as a football coach (1991-99). I received my call to vocational, pastoral ministry during that time. I then returned, post seminary, as an adjunct in 2003 and then in Campus Ministries in 2004. God has opened every door here and externally confirmed with many blessings. My life verse supports my calling here as well (Psalm 71:18).
