Life Group Pastor – Post Falls Campus
My Family: I am married to Michelle and have two daughters, Danielle and Brittany. I also have two grandchildren, Hadley and Reagan.
My Story: My wife and I moved to Post Falls in 2002 for my work as an electrician. She got on at Kootenai Medical Center as a nurse. We looked for a local church and found a rough group of people meeting at a high school. These seemed to be real people with a real heart to follow Jesus and carry out his mission. We got into a home group and met people much like ourselves who wanted to learn and grow as disciples of Jesus.
After a couple of home group “branches,” we we found ourselves leading our own home group. Soon, we were coaching several other home group leaders and awhile later, I was asked to come on staff as a Community Pastor. I declined. But a year later, at the end of 2006, I was asked again, and we felt God calling us to this new career in ministry.
Before RLM: I worked through high school at a frozen yogurt shop, attended college for a year, then worked as a carpenter for six years and an electrician for seven years.
