NMSM partners with the churches of NM to provide opportunities for churches and students to develop healthy student ministries and students intimately connected to God and one another.

Hey New Mexico Network! Let me begin by saying what an honor it is to serve the great state of New Mexico. I grew up in Albuquerque, NM for 21 years of my life and I am so glad to be back in this amazing state. From the beautiful sky to the desert sands, I love New Mexico. I remember flying into Albuquerque a few years ago and i heard the voice of God speak to me telling me that I would be back in New Mexico someday. As I was Youth Pastoring in Texas at the time, I wondered if that was really God or just my bad airport coffee. I quickly dismissed the thought but remembered those words in my spirit the moment the possibility of becoming the Student Ministries Director of New Mexico became a reality. I am so glad that God called my family and me back to New Mexico. My wife Brittni and I have been married for 8 years and we have two wonderful boys, Joshua-4 and Judah-1. All three of them are my biggest blessings! My wife Brittni and I have Youth Pastored for over 8 years in Texas and New Mexico and have loved every second of it. We so look forward to finding the best way to serve each of you. My great hope is to see ministries across New Mexico UNITE together to reach this state with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am honored to join you in that mission. It is wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces in our Network, and I look forward to meeting you all! Again, I am so grateful to serve New Mexico along side all of you. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do for the future of this great state.
