I come to you from Shoreview, Minnesota where I was retired from Lutheran administration and currently teach as an adjunct professor at Concordia University in the education department. I am married to Barb, an Occupational Therapist and have two children Emily and Joseph. I enjoy spending time with my two grandchildren, Henry and Cameron as well as fishing for the elusive walleye at the cabin.  I spend my free time watching my wife garden, reading history books and losing golf balls on the golf course.

Senior Pastor 


It has been a joy to serve as the Sr. Pastor at Zion since March of 2019. My wife, Rachel, and I have been married for 20 years and have been blessed with three children. When I am not at church I enjoy racquetball, reading spy novels and sports, especially the great and glorious Green Bay Packers. Did I mention I am from Wisconsin? My greatest joy in life however, is sharing the truth of God's Word and grace of God in Jesus Christ who brings new life and eternal life to the world.
