Introduction I was raised on a farm near the small town of Waldron, Michigan. I had a marvelous childhood, growing up with fine parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. At the age of 18 I fell in love with Anna and we were married at 20. We've been blessed with four adorable kids. In 2016 I completed a Doctor of Ministry degree from Asbury Theological Seminary. In my spare time I like to build stuff - especially stuff for my kids.
