Growing up initially as a corporate leader and corporate trainer for over 20 years I have always had a passion to make a positive difference is the lives of people.  Realizing that the most positive impact comes in ones relationship to Jesus Christ, I attended  St. Louis Seminary through the Specific Ministry Pastoral program graduating in February 2017. As an associate pastor now with Hosanna Lutheran Church, I serve the congregation as a part of their caregiving ministries as well as more recently walking with smaller congregations to help them navigate through a challenging and ever-changing culture.  My highest priority has always been one of relationships stating that “People don’t care what you know until they know you care.”

I recently celebrated 30 years of marriage with my wife Rhonda and have been blessed with 4 boys, 1 daughter-in-law and now 2 grandchildren.
