Growing up in Oak Park, Illinois, God brought me to Arizona to attend ASU. It is there where I met my wife of over 36 years, Terese. We have two sons, Josh married to Jordan and Caleb married to Kelly. We have three interesting, curious and active grandchildren, who are a great joy! I currently work as an engineer for General Dynamics and have a heart for workplace ministry.
God radically transformed our hearts and lives when he brought us to East Valley Bible Church (now Redemption Gilbert), what a great blessing this church is to us! My wife and I have a passion to encourage and mentor couples in their engagements and marriages. For fun, we love to gather around the table, enjoy travel and play pickleball together.
One of my favorite quotes is from Randy Alcorn’s book Safely Home, is from a character named Li Quan. Li Quan writes “Real gold fears no fire” That is my prayer for God to refine me with fire.
