Originally from Leavenworth, KS, Wayne came to the University of Kansas to play
basketball. While attending KU, Wayne received recognition as a two time All-American and was the Big 12 Player of the Year. More importantly, it was during this time at KU that he was reached through this ministry and made the decision to acknowledge Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
Upon graduation, he was selected in the first round of the 2005 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat, with whom he won a World Championship. Wayne transitioned from professional basketball in 2009 to work in the full time ministry with CTG.
As a campus minister he serves both traditional students and student athletes in additional to hosting outreach basketball camps. He is married to his wonderful wife Katie and they have four beautiful children- Selah, Rael, Simon and Shepherd.
