I grew up in Wisconsin and attended high school at Luther Preparatory School. There, l met the love of my life, Jennifer. For pastoral training, I attended Martin Luther College and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. My first assignment was to a small congregation in Tomball, TX. I served there for 8 years and fell in love with the people. Then, we moved to a large congregation in Rochester, MN. There, too, we were blessed. Now we are so thankful to be serving the wonderful members of Faith and the Tyler community.

Other than my Savior’s love, my greatest joy is my family. My wife, Jennifer, is a wife of noble character. The LORD has blessed us with seven children: Christian, Teagan, Isaiah, Gideon, Shiloh, Phoebe and Eden. We are all competitive, so you may find us playing spike ball, soccer, basketball, football, board games and any other activity where there is a winner and a loser. We have lots of fun together.

Favorite Scripture: Psalm 73:25-26: Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
