Director of Financial Operations
I was born and raised in Lincolnton, NC. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at age six, in our family RV on the way to vacation in Pigeon Forge, TN. Growing up I loved sports and fell in love with basketball. I played in leagues and school from 5thgrade on. During my high school years, I had two passions… my relationship with Christ and sports. During that time, God placed ministry on my heart, but I was not sure what that looked like, thus I chased hard after sports. I attended Gardner-Webb University, and was a student manager for the basketball team, and graduated with a BS in Sport Management. I continued on to be a graduate assistant for the basketball team at GWU and graduated with a Master of Business Administration. Upon graduating, I joined the basketball staff as Director of Basketball Operations and held that position for two years before transitioning to the Athletic Administration at Gardner-Webb as Director of Student-Athlete Development. During those years on staff at GWU, I felt God pulling me to lean in closer to him, and that feeling of ministry started coming back. Hope Community Church was a big influence in my life during my time at GWU, and now I look forward to seeing how that feeling of ministry will be fleshed out working at HCC and see how God will continue to bless Hope. I married the amazing Jillian Krick on May 24th, 2019.
My Hope for HCC
My hope for HCC is to see our church continue to expand into new areas and ministries in order to utilize all of our resources to honor God as he continues to bless HCC as we strive to give hope, create community, and be the church.
