In his time at FHU, he has been highly active with the social club Chi Beta Chi, serving as an officer for four semesters. He has been a member of the Makin’ Music Show Band for the past two years. He has also worked with the FHU Christian Store and was fundamental in the creation of 312 Ministries, an online resource for those striving to live a Christian life.
