I was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, way back in 1955. It was my privilege to grow up on a dairy farm with a brother and two sisters. I came to know the Lord at age twelve while attending special meetings at a local Bible church. I attended one year community college and majored in production agriculture, then I worked on a couple of dairy farms. The Lord drew me closer to Himself and led me to a small Bible college in Arkansas where I majored in Bible and Christian education. I taught at my home church’s junior high and high school for a couple of years before the Lord led my family to Bethel, where I’ve been awesomely blessed for the last twenty-nine years. During that time I’ve had the opportunity to complete a Master’s degree from Trinity Seminary. I have been married for close to thirty-six years, have four children, and nine grandchildren.

What was the first concert you went to?
My wife and I went to see Steve and Maria Gardner

What excites you about teaching at BCS?
Everything excites me about teaching at BCS. I love the fact that the Lord allows me to teach His Word. I love my students and just being here. It is most exciting to trust God to use me to help build a strong Chrstian foundation in the lives of young people.
