I grew up in central Minnesota in a rural community outside of Kimball in which my family had a small hobby farm. I recieved a BA in elementary education with a concentration in Environmental Science from Concordia College St. Paul, MN. I later received a Masters in Educational Administration from Concordia University Wisconsin. It has been a blessing to serve at Immanuel in many roles since 1992 and currently serve as principal. I am the husband of Wendy and father to Caleb, Kaity, and Chassiya. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and time at the lake.
Our theme this year is REAL.PRESENT.GOD. Name a time in your life when you felt God’s real presence.
God has been present in many things in my life at different levels. When my children were baptized into God's family God was present. When my father passed away and having the comfort that this is all in God’s hands was a comfort. In my role as administrator and having the opportunity to share Jesus with families while I am just the hands and feet of God. In times like these our God is Real and Present.
