Leadership and Staff

  • Lead Pastor & Elder

    My family and I moved to Bremerton in the spring of 2013 to begin working at Seaside. Prior to that we’ve lived in Chicago and Portland but spent the majority of our lives (so far) in the city of Baltimore, Md. Most of our experience is in Urban Ministry and Church Planting. God has given my wife (Beth) and I four awesome kids who all attend school right here in Btown. We have a special heart for our Bremerton school system (Beth works as a Substitute Teacher) and are also foster parents with Youth For Christ. We love to get outside and hike, bike, as well as camp. We also love playing games and having friends over. In addition to serving at Seaside I also serve as a volunteer chaplain for the Bremerton Police Department. I’m a graduate from Moody Bible Institute (BA in Urban Ministry) and I’m currently chipping away at an MDiv at Western Seminary. I’d love to connect with you personally or through social media. Please check my blog as well. Finally, my claim to fame is once meeting Biz Markie at a Raven’s game! There’s a little about me and my family… hope to you meet you soon! 

  • Worship, Youth and Operations

    I started attending Seaside with my family in 2007. At our first Seaside Sunday gathering we saw a church with strong gospel centered roots and a deep desire to grow in community and care for each other. Since then we have greatly enjoyed being a part of that community and have been constantly reminded of Jesus, our only hope. In June 2014, I joined Seaside as the full time Worship/ Youth (and a little bit of everything else) Lead. As a young boy, I met Jesus with my parents on our living room couch. However, it wasn’t until I was in Bible college and engaged (to my wife Candice) that I really began opening my life to God’s work. We have four boys and love living in Bremerton/ Kitsap. In particular, we enjoy biking, boating and rooting for our favorite football teams! It is a great privilege to serve at Seaside and here in Bremerton/ Kitsap!
