Sam was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. He met his wife Kelly while stationed in Jacksonville, Florida. They were married in January 2016 and shipped off to Okinawa in June 2016. God has blessed them with a 1 year old son and a baby daughter expected to come in October 2018.
They have been a part of the Pillar Okinawa family since January of 2017. Their passion is serving and pursuing Jesus in community. “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” Romans 12:4
