After serving in ministry positions across the state of Oklahoma Curt joined the Parkview pastoral staff in 2016. He is passionate about connecting individuals to God through a lifestyle of worship. The more we know of Him the truer our expression of worship will be. When Curt isn’t thinking ‘church,’ he is enjoying time with his family; his lovely wife Julie and their two boys Caleb and Kyler.

New to the staff, Curt looks forward to becoming familiar with the Parkview community of faith and making the Christ known together.
