I was born in Hutchinson, KS and grew up in Nickerson, KS. I spent most of my summers on the family farm, helping my grandfather. The Lord used my great-grandmother to help me see the need for Christ in my life, and I became a Christian when I was in middle school at a camp near Wichita. I earned my graduate degree from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy and have worked in the field of Pharmacy for over 25 years. My wife and I became actively involved at Grace Bible Church in 2009, and in 2012 I was granted the privilege to serve the body of Christ as an elder. This has been a humbling and exciting adventure as the body has blessed me and our Lord continues to stretch and grow me through this service to Him. I currently oversee the Wednesday evening Kids Club Ministry and am excited to see God working in the lives of these young people. God blessed me with a beautiful wife, Carrie, in 1990 and three children – Chloie (1998), Grace (2004), and Caleb (2005).
