Hello! It is my privilege to serve here at Grace Baptist Church. God has been good to me! I married my beautiful wife, Diane, in 2009, and we have been blessed with 3 boys – Samuel, Nathanael, and Michael. I am thankful for my family, and they keep me trusting in the Lord, needing fresh energy from Him everyday!
I am thankful for great training in handling God’s Word. I have my BA and MA from Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa, where they are committed to biblical faithfulness. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of God’s Word as revealed to us in the Bible. It is my handbook for life and godliness, and I believe, despite the difficulties we face in life sometimes, that it gives us all we need for those (2 Peter 1:3)!
I am also incredibly grateful for godly mentors in my life who have invested in me, that I may grow to know and trust Jesus more. It has influenced not only my ministry, but my daily life: in my relationships with the Lord, my family, and others. I am a work in progress; the Lord is not finished with me yet!
In the same way, I find my greatest joy in investing in others, so that they may have hope in Jesus and find guidance in God’s Word. That is my goal in all I do: “We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).
