God brought my wife Kathi into my life in 1980 and we were married in 1982. We have three children-two of which are married. Tanner and his wife Jenna attend Redemption Gilbert, while Becca and her husband Jonathan, along with Paul our youngest, live in Eugene, Oregon. I am a contractor by trade and my wife Kathi does biblical counseling with Redemption Church.
I was raised in a church going family but did not know Christ. Kathi and I were married in the Catholic church but both of us were drawn and came to faith in Christ a few years apart under Tom Shrader’s teaching ministry. We have both been active members of Redemption for about 22 years.
