I grew up in central Iowa where I came to faith in Christ as a young teen. In 1981 I began preaching God’s Word and have been a full-time senior pastor since 1987. God allowed me to shepherd the Plymouth Alliance Church in Plymouth, Wisconsin from 1987-2001. Since that time I have been answering His call as the senior pastor at the Stow Alliance Fellowship in Stow, Ohio.

My formal education has been a rich and wonderful experience: B.A. from Crown College, M.Div. from Columbia International University, and D.Min. from Trinity International University.

Since 1983 Julie, my best friend, has been my wife. Together we find great delight in our children: Melody, Joe and his wife Gina, and Clint.

I’m thankful to have published several books. I’ve been blessed to travel to five continents of the world teaching God’s Word.
