Todd began his journey on Staff in 2016 and is passionate about helping people find their place at Hope. Todd brings with him ten years of experience serving as a high school youth pastor and he also spent two years in the marketplace in various sales roles. Once you meet Todd, you will quickly learn that he does not sit still for very long and enjoys being involved in the church and community. Todd earned his undergraduate degree from Huntington College (yes, the last class to graduate as a College) and a master’s degree from Bethel College. Todd married his high school sweet heart Julie, in 2004 and they have two energetic and highly relational kids. Kahra is a leader at heart and Connley is the family jokester. If Todd is not meeting with people, you will most likely find him waterskiing, riding bikes, running, lifting weights, or doing anything active outdoors. If you need Todd to do anything, you can most likely be persuaded by offering him a cup of coffee— without sugar or cream of course.
