I am the father of four wonderful children, and the husband to the best wife known to man. We are a blended family, Beth and I have been married almost 20 years. The three boys have gone and grown up on us and that leaves my princess who is now a sophomore at DePaul University in Chicago. She is not home nearly enough so we can be considered empty nesters. Middle son Michael and his wife have our newest pride and joy, baby Owen who was born in June of 2016. They are quite a crew when we get them all together at the same time as you can see.
I am an Elder in The Iowa Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. I am currently the Pastor at Eldridge United Methodist Church in Eldridge Iowa, and McCausland UMC in McCausland Iowa. I hope that this space will allow me to better communicate with people and stay in touch with my friends around the country.
