We met as teenagers in Southern California and got married before my last year of college. After college, we moved to Oregon to get training for ministry in Austria. So, in 1983, Celeste and I along with our 2 children moved to begin a ministry in Austria, mostly in Vienna. After language school, we were involved in church planting, pastoring, mission team leadership as well as regional supervision of other colleagues with our mission in neighboring countries. Then in the summer of 2019, we returned to the States to begin life in Colorado where we had owned a townhouse for 10 years. I continue to be involved with our mission full time in the area of global prayer initiatives.

On our 3rd Sunday in Littleton we attended South Fellowship and never left! I soon got involved with the Watchmen Prayer ministry and Celeste later joined Sisterhood. We love the local church and I am willing to use my passion for shepherding and prayer at South as the Lord leads the church.
