One of the privileges I have in life is the honor of serving on the board of directors for Ball for Lives. You may remember that last summer I (Jamie) dribbled the Twin Cities Marathon to raise funds & awareness for stopping the sex slave trafficking that exists in this world. Ball for Lives is the organization we ran for. They truly desire to see the love & justice of God permeated into every corner of earth. There are many great ways to participate with them. NO…you don’t have to dribble a half or full marathon to join in with them. There are other less painful ways (physically speaking) to partner. Take a moment and check out what they do. You will be glad you did!



I am married to a beautiful woman named Gretchen and have three amazing girls - Tori, Isabelle, and Macie. I live in the Twin Cities area currently but I was born & raised in Columbus, OH and will always be a buckeye. I have the privilege of being a part of my faith community - The Garden Communities - and seeing the Kingdom of God expanded on the campuses of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I enjoy watching OSU football, playing basketball, drinking amazing coffee & sharing a meal with friends & family.
