My wife, kids, and I are happy to call Western North Carolina home. I grew up near the mountains in Washington, so this place has been comfortable from the start.

Early on, I decided I wanted to become a pastor. I enrolled at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. It was there that I received my BA.It was also there that I met Sarah. After graduation, she taught in Minnesota for two years while I began my graduate studies at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. During these four years, I continued the intense studies I began in college, studies in the original, biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek), counseling, preaching, outreach, and more. I also thoroughly enjoyed the practical experiences in the Milwaukee area and through a year of internship in Summerville, SC. It was also during these years that Sarah and I said, "I do." We have been blessed with four children: Micah, Madelyn, Jonah, and Elias. Yes, that means we have officially moved from "zone defense" to "prevent." They have made life fun and filled with blessings beyond what we could have anticipated. God is good!

God continues to bless this incredible church family with an exciting ministry and increasing opportunities to reach out to our community. You will find that Living Savior is a place where Christians connect with one another and with their Savior Jesus. The people of Living Savior and I would love for you to experience what we have found together, peace in Jesus our Savior and purpose in life.   

If I am not in the office, I am visiting people, and/or spending valuable family time. Call or e-mail me anytime. I look forward to getting to know you and sharing the message of your Savior, Jesus, with you.
