Professional Summary

Majority of the highlights of my life are usually within and with what I have accomplished and gained, I use on the outside world to better myself and my surroundings. Being a strong, yet compassionate individual, is a major strength of mine, as I strive to stay positive in all situations. I also am extremely observant and use my life experiences to grow and learn.

Work History
Summer Youth Intern , 07/2013 to 07/2013
Oyate Connections Eagle Butte, SD
This was a program where they give the youth opportunity to expand their work ethic, experience the outside world, and work beyond measures. They weren't really specific on what were titled to when given a position that best fit our interests. The position I received is where I filed papers, took out trash, answered phones, etc. My role was being an office assistant, and assist whomever I was assisting in the best possible way. I felt as I was responsible for my own and their success. Experience that position gave me an small perspective when working in an office feels like.

Summer Youth Intern , 07/2014 to 07/2014
Oyate Connection Eagle Butte, SD
I worked with this organization again as well when I wanted to experienced the more outdoors, with nature and living creatures. Although before I got to do so, I was positioned at a desk, where I would answer phone calls again as well. Later through the days, I got to experience what I've been hoping for. The individual who was in charge of me and other interns took us to the local skate park we have in town to pick trash, paint the graffiti off the ramps and such. I felt responsible for giving the town a better outlook and more healthy to the views it would be getting from local residents, and visitors. On different days, we would go to a different location and trim the branches off of the trees outside of the Manner we have in town. They would also have us haul wood down to other communities for beneficial needs. My role was fun, as to enjoying what I did and making the best of it because I knew others would look up to those enjoying life.
Four Bands Community Fund Intern, 04/2016 to 06/2016
Cheyenne River Youth Project Eagle Butte, SD
The Cheyenne River Youth Project is another organization where the youth get the opportunity to experience what the organization has to offer. When I was interning, we would take the kids whom would come between the hours of 4-8 at the Main which is for children under the age of 13 to the gym, take them on bike rides, play with them on the playground or take them to the rodeo grounds and explore a bit. When supper would arrive, we would make meals for the kids and do activities with them inside such as arts and crafts, board games, or go with them into the library and read books. As my internship ended, I decided to work there voluntarily and continue having fun with the kids. I do plan on working there again in the future.

I went to college after I graduated high school in 2016 and attended college the following year in 2016 which I was hoping to go back in the spring of 2017, but difficulties came up so I had to pass on that opportunity to tend to my emergency needs. Although I haven't finished my first year of college. I do plan on attending college again.


I can acquire many skills and I am also a dedicated worker; once I commit to something, I see it through till completion. I am an active listener and enjoy learning from others. Through personal experiences I have learned to become adaptable when challenges arise which has developed in my excellent problem solving skills. Timeliness and organization are both priorities and strong suits of mine.

Personal Commitments
  • My salvation experience occurred when I was nine years old.  That experience forever changed my life.  I can remember as it was yesterday sitting in the pew with the Holy Spirit convicting me to make the move to the alter.  Since that day He has been working in  my life.  I can't say I haven't failed from time to time.  But I can say this God has certainly been leading me and guiding through life.

  • I am a pastor because at the age eighteen I answered my call to preach the word.  That has been twenty one years ago.  I wouldn't change it for anything.  The road hasn't always been easy but always rewarding.

  • I am a big believer in reaching the lost.  Develop a habit of doing servant evangelism in the local area.  Sending notes of congratulations to parents in the area for every child born.  Organize block parties for local communities. Have a church outreach for nursing home patients.  Reach out to local hospitals and volunteer for chaplain duties.  Door knocking, PTA, and help in soup kitchens.  These are just a few that I think will work.  Some of these I have done in my years in the ministry.

  • For me serving Christ is the highest honor that I have.  I love my wife and three children dearly, but serving the Lord has always been first priority in my life.   I believe the church needs as many people as possible to be on fire for the Lord.  I think we're living in the final days before the rapture.
