Hey there! My name is Jay, and I lead the student ministry here a Rosewood alongside a group of committed, fun, and awesome volunteer adult leaders. I truly value practical application of Scripture in our lives, taking youth group beyond our building and applying it to our lives throughout the week. My sweet and beautiful wife, Britni, is a huge support who also keeps me grounded. We have 4 energetic young boys – Whoa…yeah, I’m a busy guy! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Grand Valley State University and am almost finished with a Masters degree in ministry from Huntington University. I’m a health nut! I love to be at the gym to exercise and lift weights. I also am a LEGO nerd! In a nutshell my passions are working with youth, being creative, health and adventure!
