I am married to Stephanie, and we have three young adult children (and 2 dogs). We have lived in the community since 2016 and since then have added almost 20 hens, 1 rooster, 1 cat, along with a fruit orchard and vegetable garden.
I enjoy watching a Viking win over the Packers and playing a friendly game of cards. Yet having a relaxing conversation with people over a cup of coffee while discussing life and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ tops the list.
Before coming to First Baptist, we lived in California where I served as a pastor and a school teacher. We also lived for two years in the People’s Republic of China where we served as educational missionaries. Along the way I received graduate degrees in Education, Church Administration emphasis from Concordia University, Irvine, CA and in Christian Ministry, Pastoral Ministries cognate from Liberty University – Baptist Theological Seminary, Lynchburg, VA.
