I was born in South Dakota. My family relocated to Arizona when I was in grade school. God saved me at the age of eleven. Through both struggles and celebrations, Christ has been my constant anchor. I am grateful to Him for his love, mercy, and grace. He has and continues to bless my life beyond measure. I have been married to my best friend, Ann, since 1979. We have four grown children, John, Jaclyn, Jordan and Jamie. John and his wife Lindsay, are active at Redemption Gateway. Jaclyn, her husband Steve, and Jamie are all active at Redemption Gilbert. Jordan and her husband Josh are active at Cornerstone church. Our kids have blessed us with eight grandkids.
I work at Western Foodservice Equipment and Design, where I design and equip commercial food service facilities. In addition to my role as an elder, I also lead an RC Group in south Chandler. Redemption Church has impacted our family in tremendous ways. We have attended here since the first service in November, 1991. I love this church and so appreciate the sound Bible teaching, great music, and friendly people.
