How did you become a Christian?
My wife Holly and I both grew up with religion and being very committed to a denomination. We had head knowledge but lacked heart knowledge of the Lord. Early in our marriage it became very clear to both of us that we needed God at the center of our lives. We joined a small group Bible study that helped start us down the path to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

How long have you been at SPC?

Since 1999, when we moved to Park Ridge.

Why are you drawn to the role of Elder?

A former Elder asked me, " If God is calling you, who are we to say no?" This challenged me to say yes to the nominators. I am humbled and honored to be used by God in this role.

What is your favorite Bible verse or story?
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

Where are you involved through SPC?
Elder, Usher, Small Groups, Iron Men

What is a fun fact about you?
