At the time of his death, Todd was youth director at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church in Arlington. His focus was showing the youth how to be true disciples of Christ. He led by example, reminded them to focus on the cross, because nothing else matters. He said it wasn't about religion, it was about the relationship with God. Todd touched the lives of everyone he came in contact with in ministry. Loved by many and will be missed tremendously. We know Todd is in heaven and has heard the words "well done thy good and faithful servant". Our faith tells us this is not a goodbye so instead we will say...until we meet again.
