Right out of high school, I took a year to go overseas to Denmark to attend the Discipleship Training School and the School of Evangelism with Youth with a Mission (YWAM). After returning to the states, I joined a mission organization in northern MN that worked with Native Americans in remote villages in northern Ontario, Canada. While on outreach, I met my future wife, Mary, and we were married a year later.
After getting married, I left the ministry to become trained as an accountant with the intention of coming back to the same mission organization. We did so and served for an additional five years as their business manager. In 1994, we moved to Columbia with our four children, where I obtained my CPA and worked in a variety of accounting positions and as a CFO for over a decade.
Once in Columbia, we started attending Christian Fellowship Church and have enjoyed the fellowship, volunteering in various ways, and going on mission trips around the world (India, Ecuador, Guatemala). In June of 2021, I came to work on staff at Christian Fellowship to serve as Business Director. It’s been like “coming home” to my roots and motivation for why I became an accountant in the first place.
Being outside in nature feeds and refreshes my soul. I enjoy hanging out with my best friend, Mary, in the evenings on our back deck overlooking the woods.
I love being a husband, with four grown children and five grandchildren. None live in Missouri, so that means vacations to where they are! I have really enjoyed this journey of embracing and maturing into my identity in Christ and to see His grace expressed in the lives of those I work with and relate to. This is an amazing group of people!
