I am currently a bi-vocational Lead Pastor in Battle Creek, MI (Yes, you can smell Kellogg's everyday. “Frosted Flakes Day” is my personal favorite). I also work as an Orthopedic Tech at Bronson Battle Creek Hospital. In my twenty-two years of ministry, I have served a variety of denominations and churches.
My wife and I have been married for 34 years; have 5 children and 16 grandchildren.
When I'm not thinking about hiking or planning the next hiking trip, I am either at home with the family, at the movies with my wife or reading a book. Trips to the Appalachian Trail, Iceland, and England are currently in the planning stages. Two of my favorite things in the world are going to Saugatuck, MI with my wife and hiking Isle Royale National Park with my boys.
I have a passionate love for the Bride of Christ. It is this love that propels me to call the Body of Christ to live out its true identity.
