Alan sensed a call to ministry while on a missions trip when he was 17. He then attended and graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center. Upon graduation, he returned to his home church in Twin Falls, Idaho to serve in the youth ministry. Alan was then on staff at Life Church from its inception in 2001 until August of 2010. He has served as the Youth Pastor and has fulfilled many supportive roles in the Church. His ministry has included preaching on missions trips, ministering at Youth and Children’s camps, and instructing in Bible Schools. Upon resigning Life Church he launched Addicted to Jesus, International in January 2011 with a heart to reach the lost in some of the most unreached places of the world.
