I am a graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN. I have been in the ministry twenty years and have served Bethlehem since December of 2009. I am married to Susan; we have three teenage children, Robert (18); Adam (16); Rachel (14). My favorite activity away from church is playing in my garden and as time permits, hunting and fishing. Prior to entering the ministry I taught at the High School level for three years, was a certified Athletic Trainer for six years, and a licensed residential building contractor for five years.
