What is your job?
What are your responsibilities?
My primary responsibilities include preaching, praying, equipping God’s people for ministry, and spiritual care.
Tell me about your family
Jamie and I were married in 1998, and we have one son, Micah. Jamie is an amazingly gifted social worker, who has taught me most of what I know about what loving others looks like. Micah is reputed by his mother to be my “Mini-me”—he is not amused.
Where are you from?
I grew up in Allendale, MI, met Jamie in Marion, IN, and became a father in Wheaton, IL. God has been so gracious to give us home and family wherever we go.
Tell me about your Education and Experience
B.S. Indiana Wesleyan, Christian Ministries (milled around at the University of Michigan and Grand Valley State University for awhile before that); M.A. Wheaton College, Biblical Exegesis (Biblical Studies); M.A. Wheaton College, Historical and Systematic Theology; Ph.D. Wheaton College, Biblical Theology—New Testament. So, basically, I sat in a library until God kicked me out and into ministry.
How long have you been at Christ’s Community Church?
Since April 2017.
