Colin was born in St. Louis, Missouri and was the youngest in a family of seven children. His journey to faith began when his future wife, Kristen, gave him a Bible as a gift and the Lord used His Word to open his eyes to his need for Jesus Christ. He was saved in the fall of 1992, and subsequently he and Kristen were married. They have two adult married children and one teenage child still at home and have three grandchildren. One of his greatest joys is serving alongside his wife in various ministry capacities. He became an elder at Saving Grace Bible Church in 2015 and came on staff in 2022.
