Karen and I have been married since 1987. We have three children: Jessica, Amber, and Jeremiah. We also have 7 grandchildren, all living nearby, what a blessing.
I wasn’t raised in the church, but I did have a good home life growing up in the Midwest. I didn’t come to know and have a relationship with Christ until much later in life. As an adult, I think I had such a mental block when it came to my spirituality. For years I just sort of dipped one toe in the water once in a while, but there was never any commitment. I really don’t know how it happened or why, and I didn’t’ have a big “ah ha” moment like some people do, but I eventually came to a point where I just felt ready to take a huge leap of faith. Shortly after that my wife and I came to RockPointe Church where we found it incredibly easy to get plugged in and my faith and spiritual life has been growing ever since. I love that I have the opportunity to work at RockPointe now and use skills I have developed over the years to help advance the Kingdom in my own little way.
Something Most People Don’t Know:
I was a telecommunications engineer and executive for 27 years, retired and started flipping houses, retired again and started a handyman business, retired again and here I am at RockPointe.
My Trademark Expression:
No, no, no, no, no (did I mention I have seven grandchildren?)
Besides the Bible, my recommended reading would be:
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
I’m most excited about:
Seeing how God is working in the lives of my children and grandchildren.
My favorite TV shows:
I am more of a movie person. My favorite movie is Braveheart. I love big, epic movies. I grew up on westerns and I still love those, like Lonesome Dove.
In my free time, I usually:
Chase grandchildren around, get together with family or friends, eat a lot, watch movies, and I have a multitude of hobbies: woodworking, fishing, hunting, genealogy, photography, golfing although I never seem to have any spare time to do these.
