My wife (Patty) and I have been married for over 24 years. We have to two boys in college, Josh and Jacob. I am a bi-vocational pastor and work as an Engineer at a local manufacturing firm. I graduated from Western Seminary in Holland with a Masters in Divinity. For over seven years I have been blessed to know the people of Sparta, and previous to that work, in various discipleship roles at a church in the Cedar Springs area. The most important thing to know about me is that I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so stop in and join the conversation about Him as we study the scriptures, or the conversation to Him as we pray.
