About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Pastor; Minister of Word and Sacrament
Location Midland, Michigan
Introduction Hometown: St. Paul, MN. College: University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. BS Water Resources, (College of Natural Resources). I was on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (1985-1993). Much of that time was spent in prison ministry. I worked in state, federal and local correctional facilities in CA, GA, and WI). My last assignment involved sending mission teams to the former Soviet Union in conjunction with "Co-Mission" (I helped train the first two teams). At this juncture I had come to an understanding of reformed theology. Shortly thereafter I sensed God's call to pastoral ministry and to decline an exciting opportunity to live and minister in Novosibirsk, Russia (Siberia). I have a heart for missions and hope to serve in another country/culture sometime in the future. I have served as pastor of three churches. I have also spent five years working at a Fortune 50 corporation. Theological Education: Masters of Divinity (MDiv). Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri. Masters Degree of Theology (ThM) in Historical Theology from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ordained: Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
