Before coming to Grace, I taught K-12 education in the nearby Holton school district, then graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago with a Master of Divinity. Since my wife Tricia and I first attended Grace, we have been so thankful for the warm welcome the community has blessed us with. I have a deep love for the Word of God, and it's incredibly meaningful to have the opportunity to study it and share it weekly with others. I also care about nurturing authentic relationships and community, and would love to get the chance to sit down and chat with you about Grace, or just life in general. Feel free to reach out anytime with questions or prayer requests!

My wife, Kim, and I, along with our family 
enjoy being part of what makes Grace 
work. The interaction with the elders and
 the work within the community is most
 rewarding. We have been part of Grace
 since it began as a weekly fellowship.
