Rod has been both a volunteer Youth Director and a paid Youth Pastor for almost 20 years. In that time he has seen many young people come to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Both through the church and youth outreaches. It is from his own experience as an at-risk youth that Rod pulls his passionate stories of God’s grace and hearing His voice from those experiences.
If you want to address self-identity, bullying, broken families, purpose, or hearing God, Rod’s your man. He will not disappoint you. He knows that in order to speak into the lives of our youth, we need to be relevant, passionate, funny, and a little weird.
Rod has spoken to many different congregations over the 20+ years in ministry. “I love to share my stories and experiences with others”, Rod says, “I believe many congregations want a reason to do something. I give them that reason”. Rod really works hard to connect with people and help them find their purpose in Christ.
Rod can connect with people in small groups just as easily in large ones. If you have a small group that wants to be inspired to hear God’s voice or to challenge them to share their faith with others. His teaching methods are interactive and encourage participation and pulls thoughts and ideas out from the group. With a small donation, he would be glad to visit your small group and talk on a variety of youth or current issues affecting the church.
