IAm3 is living beyond myself and humbly seeking to serve others in the name of Christ.
Living fearlessly is to act with courage, knowing that God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a strong mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
How has your life been changed through the program as you have moved from a manager to the director of basketball operations to a graduate assistant to an assistant coach?
I have been blessed to work under some of the greatest leaders in college basketball. Through their leadership, I have seen what it takes to be committed to excellence on and off the court. The knowledge and experience I have gained throughout my time at IWU has enriched my coaching career, personal life and spiritual growth.
What do you hope a player who play at IWU gains from his experience?
My prayer is that every player that comes through our program will rise up to be godly leaders, equipped to imitate Christ's humility.
