I am married to Heidi, and we’ve been married 30 years. All three of our kids have grown up at Grace Church (Ben, Leah and Grace). We started attending when Heidi was expecting Ben back in 1996. Both Heidi and I have been very involved in serving at Grace. Heidi spent 20 years teaching 3 year-olds (her favorite age group), with many of those years being a member of the Children’s Ministry Leadership Team. Heidi has also been involved in Women’s Ministry, often leading small groups.
While I started serving through the Worship Ministry and Men’s Ministry, I was recommended for a leadership role during a capital campaign for expanding the footprint of our building. I was then nominated to be the Chair of the Sr. Pastor search committee. I joined the Elder board in 2010, serving for 6 years. After taking a break and leading a WIN team around Leadership Development, I am excited to be serving as an elder once again.
