Garrett was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois. In 2011 he received his bachelor's degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. For the last ten years, he has been serving with a missions organization based in Lakeside, MT called Youth With A Mission (YWAM).
It was during his time training mission-minded bible teachers, that he and his wife decided to pursue more theological training at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA. Garrett graduated in 2019 with a Masters in Biblical Languages and a Masters in Old Testament. He and his family then moved to Kyiv, Ukraine where they were pioneering a Bible program geared towards teaching local lay leaders and pastors in the Ukrainian church. On February 24, 2022 they moved back to America and settled in Milwaukee, where they have loved getting to know the city and their community.
Garrett's desire is to see young people fall in love with God and His word; growing in their desire to study the Scriptures for themselves. Garrett has been married for 8 years to his wife Cassie, and they have 3 children. In his free time, Garrett likes to play board games, disc golf, read, and spend time with his family.
