Family & Roots
Both Carol and I have our roots in German settlers in the Midwest. Carol is a Dakota Girl and I am from Nebraska. We were college sweethearts and married since 1976.
I completed a Double Major, Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry and Biology before attending Seminary and receiving a Masters In Religious Education. Carol, my wife has two Masters degrees in Education and leads Foundation Academy as Director of Education.
My wife and I have five children: three sons, two daughters and our family continues to grow with three daughters-in-law’s, one son-in-law and four grandchildren.
I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 15 and immediately became involved in personal evangelism and street witnessing. A proud member of the Jesus Freak era. I have spent my entire Christian life seeking to be involved in churches where evangelism was a priority. My true spiritual gift is Exhortation or Encouragement and I use this gift to motivate and challenge people to serve Christ. I am tender-hearted and easily emotional about Christ’s love and sacrifice for me. My desire for souls to come to Christ has changed my demeanor from shy to bold.
