About Todd

I am the Executive Pastor of Family and Ministry Operations at First Church of the Open Bible where I have the privilege to assist the Lead Pastor in leading an incredible church in Des Moines, Iowa.

Every weekend you can always find our families of First Church glorifying God by making fully devoted and Spirit followers of Jesus through Gospel-centered worship, Gospel-centered community, Gospel-centered justice, and Gospel-centered multiplication!

I have had the privilege to be in full-time pastoral ministry since 1992 covering states like Iowa, Florida, the greater DC area, Arkansas, and Missouri. Some of my God-given opportunities include or have included: Serving as Open Bible Central KidsMin Director,  Executive Operations Coordinator for Kidology, Central Region Open Bible CoachNational and International Kidology Coach , National Trainer for Kids Quest USA and Character Connex along with several opportunities to speak at camps, conferences plus numerous seminars.

I am married to Rachel, the best wife that God could have picked for me. We have been given three incredible gifts from God by the names of Jenelle, Camille, and Zachary. Lastly, I enjoy fishing with family, reading about leadership, task management, all things Macintosh and gadgets.
