First, the basics:
- Originally from Carrier Mills, Illinois
- Currently serving First United Methodist Church in Altamont, Illinois
- Earned Master of Divinity Degree at Eden Theological Seminary, May 12, 2006
- Ordained Elder in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist Church June 4, 2010
- In addition to preaching and pastoring, I also sing and play the guitar, ukulele and bass guitar. You don’t want to hear me plunk on the piano. Trust me.
I’m a simple guy with simple passions. I love God and I love the church. I love my family; my wife and my four kids are my world. I love music from all over the world and all across the spectrum. I love developing my brain cells by reading. I work hard at becoming a better version of myself every day.
