What do you do for a living?
I manage the financial side of a group of small businesses in town.
What is your role as a ministry leader?
I organize, facilitate, and promote the regular, smaller group gatherings of the Grace Life body in the effort to live out God’s callings to the church. I recruit, build up, and cast vision for group leaders so that they can do these same things within their groups.
What is your testimony of faith in Christ?
During my first year in college, God directed me through trials and into a loving community of believers. In that community of God’s people, I heard God’s Word spoken, preached, and lived out. The compelling image of Christ became clear to me, and I was drawn to repentance and true faith in Christ.
In 2009, I was fortunate enough to marry my lovely wife, Laina Bishop. We have 3 children.
Where are you from?
I grew up in a small town west of Des Moines called Van Meter.
What are some books (other than the Bible) that are favorites?
- The Reason for God by Tim Keller
- Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt
- Sherlock Homes by Arthur Conan Doyle
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I love activities with my wife and kids. I like to do home improvement projects, and I like to keep up on articles, books, and studies of economics.
