About

I love Jesus and I love film. I especially love it when you can find Jesus in films. This blog is dedicated to discovering and discussing films that beautifully, uniquely, and artistically cause us to think about God and contemplate Christ on a deep and profound level.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am also a husband, a father of 5, and a middle school pastor in Omaha, Nebraska. I first met my wife in our youth group and we got married in 2004.  Having 5 kids means our home is always exciting and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! My wife and I originally from the Wichita Kansas are but we moved to Omaha to join the LifeSpring Church staff in April of 2010 where I now serve as the pastor to middle school students and oversee church-wide communications.

I created the website www.breakfreeyouthministry.com as a resource for youth pastors, is a contributor and author on www.downloadyouthministry.com and is passionate about seeing students become set free to be Christ followers. I have a degree in Youth Ministry from Tabor College and a Masters in Theological Studies from Midwestern Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am a big Colorado Avalanche fan and enjoy playing guitar, media and web design, foreign films, true crime podcasts, frisbee golf, gobstoppers, Haruki Murakami novels, Dr. Pepper, and a nice green lawn.

Please read around and comment to join the discussion on any film you have seen. If you have a film that you would like to see me cover get in touch with me through any methor listed below!
