I am married to Annie, my high school sweetheart and best friend. Together we walked through the doors of Heritage in 1981, and for nearly 40 years have called this our church home. I can’t imagine life apart from our Heritage family. Our two sons are actively involved in ministries in their respective churches along with our wonderful daughter-in-law and four grandchildren.
After responding to the Gospel as a 13-year-old, I often lacked assurance in my relationship with God. After wrestling with doubts for fifteen years, I met some men who invited me to a weekly Bible study. As I studied the Bible, I began to comprehend the depth of God’s grace, love and forgiveness, and to understand that my attempts to be good enough or sincere enough would always fall short. Verses like Philippians 3:9 and Titus 3:5 gave me the assurance I longed for, and today I continue on my journey with a heart full of joy (Acts 8:39 Phillips).
At home, I’m often found in my garage where I create folk art and roast my own coffee beans. Or you may find me in someone else’s garage (sale) where I’m frequently looking for buried treasure.
I serve as a pastor and business administrator at Heritage and enjoy helping new Christians grow in their relationship with God.
