I arrived at Trinity, Roselle, in May 1994, as a convertible Vicar from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. After completing one year of service at Trinity, I was ordained & installed as Assistant Pastor in the summer of 1995. I currently serve in the Pastoral Care, Congregational Care, Baptism, Prayer, & Grief Ministry.
I have been married to Judy for 30 years & we have a son, Christopher, who is currently in graduate school in New York. I also have a stepson, Mark, who serves our country in the U.S. Army. We are blessed with a daughter-in-law, three grandchildren & two great grandchildren in Washington & Utah.
In my earlier life, I enjoyed a 10-year career as a golf professional in Oklahoma, Florida, & Long Grove, Illinois. Besides serving at Trinity, I have served as an adjunct professor in the lay ministry program of Concordia University, Wisconsin, a hospital chaplain, & currently lead services & Bible studies at several local senior care facilities.
My hobbies are working with Bible software programs, reading, walking, enjoying music & art, & planning trips within the U.S. & abroad. I am thankful to God for the opportunity to visit over 50 countries around the world & to keep growing & serving as a servant of my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ & of His church. My passion is to know Jesus more & to help others know Him too.
