I have been a member at Trinity since 1984. My wife Jean and I are approaching our 40th wedding anniversary. Both of our daughters attended Trinity, and are now teachers in the Chicago area.
My entire career has been in the finance and accounting field having spent 32 years with a major Chicago-based financial institution, followed by three years as a Thrivent financial adviser.
Six years ago, I felt a calling to Trinity’s staff and filled an open part-time position in the finance department. I feel that most Trinity members do not have an appreciation of the time and work it takes to keep Trinity going. We manage a $4.5 million budget and have approximately 80 employees spread across the various ministries. Managing the day-to-day financial activity can be challenging but I enjoy that kind of challenge.
In our spare time, we enjoy spending time at our property on Lake Redstone in Wisconsin.
