I am an insurance agent for General Insurance Agency in Huxley, IA

What is your role as a ministry leader?

I hold the overall responsibility to lead the congregation to magnify the greatness of God in Jesus Christ by stewarding our facilities in a manner that reflects our devotion as Grace Life Church to delight in, display, and declare the glory of Jesus Christ. I am responsible for reserving locations for member’s meetings, picnics, training and equipping setup teams and go to person with anything to deal with building facilities.

What is your testimony of faith in Christ?

At an early age, I was always excited to go to church and learn about God. I was very fortunate while growing up to have my youth leader and their family live close to us. At the age of 15, I asked God to come into my life and forgive me and I was baptized the same year. From then on, I have always been involved in God’s ministry in different roles. Praise God!


I married Sharon in 2010 and we have 4 children.
