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 and the Stow Alliance Fellowship in Stow, Ohio from 2001-2020. My wife and I are now answering God’s call to pastor an International Church in the Middle East.

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 Evangelical Divinity School.

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.
