Todd was born in Texas and raised in Missouri. It was in the Ozarks that Todd fell in love with the great outdoors. He met his wife Nancy, at Southwest Baptist University their freshman year. Although he felt called to full-time ministry, current events led him to join the United States Navy in 1987. Over the next 26 years, Todd served in the military and in his local churches. God blessed Todd and Nancy with three kids along the way, Brock, Erica and Gabrielle. They have lived in Virginia, Texas, California and Alaska. Todd’s passion continues to be centered on God’s Word, helping others and spending time in God’s creation.
