From what I have seen, you seem like a genuine guy who has a heart for the Lord. You also have a great beard. I also think that if I knew you in real life we would get along well. Keep lovin' on those youths! haha.
You can know the Bible and not know the God of the Bible. You can Facebook stalk God. You can find out what he has done and where he has been and who he is hanging out with and not know him at all. In John 6, Jesus looks at the Pharisees and says, “You study the Scriptures in vain, because you think that in them you have life, yet you refuse to come to me to whom those Scriptures testify.” Jesus is saying, “The Scriptures are talking about me, so if you say you love the Scriptures but you don’t want anything to do with me, you don’t understand the Scriptures.”
What happens when we have new hearts and the Holy Spirit is sealed inside of us is the mind is awakened to the Word of God, and the Bible starts reading us. At that moment, divine surgery begins to take place. All of a sudden, conviction begins to be fueled by the truth of the Word of God, and slowly but surely, our lives begin to line up with how God created us to interact, how God created us to engage, how God created us to walk in this fallen world, and we as people of God and as the people of God, corporately begin to push back what’s dark in the world. This is your only hope, my only hope, our only hope.
Whats the story behind your "heart support" tattoo?
For those who don’t know, Heartsupport is a non-profit organization started by Jake Luhrs (August Burns Red vocalist) built on a foundation of faith; one that desires to strengthen the youth and adults of today (especially those in the heavy music scene). It’s an online based community built to encourage, inspire and bring a message of hope. A place for anyone to talk about struggles and difficult issues and to find healing and strength in this community.
This type of thing has actually been on my heart for a long time! I’ve always had a heart for those in the heavy music scene. There are so many lost, hurt, and broken people in that scene. So long story short, as soon as I heard about this I contacted Jake Luhrs and his wife and asked what I could do to help. A few months later we got the Brother/Sister team together (it’s basically a HS street team). We wear HS shirts at shows, hand out flyers, and talk with kids about life/struggles they might be dealing with. We even got to help HS on Warped Tour last summer. So yeah it’s just a really solid organization, so I got the logo tattooed on my arm last summer.
Check out this HS video, it explains a little better what HS is all about (I’m in it for a couple seconds lol): http://vimeo.com/73149700
This was me and the HS crew at the Kansas City Warped Tour date last summer. We basically got to encourage kids all day and tell them they are loved, it was such an amazing day of ministry! It was a day I’ll never forget!

Yep, being single freakin sucks lol! I’m ready to get this show on the road! But I’m also trying to be content during this season of singleness, I still have a lot of growing to do before I’m ready to get back into the game if you will haha. God’s got a lot of stuff to chisel out of me before I’m ready to start thinking about that stuff. So to answer your question, yes lol.
