I did my under graduate work Carthage College, a small Lutheran school on the shores of Lake Michigan, where I earned a BA in Psychology. From there it was on to Luther Seminary in MN for my Master of Divinity, where I focused on both Pastoral Care and Systematic Theology. Years later, I earned my Doctor of Ministry degree in Transformation and New Church Development from Columbia (Presbyterian) Theological Seminary in Atlanta, GA.
With 25+ years’ experience, I have spent my adult life as a parish pastor and a campus minister, serving communities from the tiny country towns to the suburbs, to Midtown, Atlanta, with worship attendances raging from less than 25 to more than 600. I have been an Associate Pastor and a Lead Pastor to a part-time staff of ten. I have started a Mission Church and merged two struggling churches into a thriving new entity. I have been an Interim Pastor and an Itinerant preacher. I have built a million dollar addition and closed a church. These days I am on the hunt for my next great adventure!
My passions in ministry include preaching and teaching, Pastoral Care and Small Group Ministry. And all of ministry is evangelism.
My favorite people are the ones who ask great questions!
