It all started for me in the small town where I was born and have lived most of my life, Albert Lea Minnesota. With a town no bigger than 17,000, it felt like I grew up in a Hallmark movie. I knew people on every corner, drama wasn’t far away and there were many happy endings. I married my high school sweetheart. I even worked a majority of my professional career at the church I grew up in. We bought a house and started growing our family within miles of where we grew up and the people that raised us. What a blessing it has been being so close to family. 

I’m passionate about people. I love people and I love seeing people win. I’ve found from my experiences, work, and adventures that I want to use the power that words have in a way to encourage, bring life, better those listening, all to advance the Kingdom in the name of Jesus.

My wife Sydney and I have one biological son Briggs. We also have been fostering for awhile and have had 6 children in and out of our home. We currently have one foster son. We are also in the process of adopting from Liberia and are patiently awaiting to be united with this child in the near future. The Smiths desire to do as we’ve been called: we will be present, love unrelenting, dream big by doing all things for, with, and because of God. We believe that the best is yet to come, yet we desire to do all that we can with the time we have and with the people we love the most. We want our legacy to outlive us, one that points to Jesus first, our care for others next, and the passions for life itself in our humble pursuit of the Lord.

We’ve stepped out in faith to be a blessing to you. Let us know how we can best serve you and partner to bring about transformation, development, and Kingdom impact.
