Dakota graduated from high school in Tyler, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Civil Engineering in 2016. During his freshman year, Dakota came to better understand the love and grace of Christ, and God quickly turned his life in a new direction. Much of this happened through the ministry efforts of Impact Camp and the Grace Bible Church College Ministry, in which he later took on leadership positions. In these positions, Dakota learned to effectively teach, lead, and disciple other college students as he led them in weekly bible studies and small groups. He also worked at Pine Cove Christian Camps two summers, where he developed a passion for serving others and reflecting the love of Christ to the kids in his cabin every week.
As a Fellow, Dakota will serve on the College Staff as a college bible study coach with a focus on discipleship of the guy leaders. This role allows him to fully engage in his passion of developing leaders into actively contributing members of the church body that look beyond their own desires and seek the glory of God in every aspect of their leadership and their lives.
