Before joining Reign Ministries I did a little of everything; I sold diamond engagement rings in downtown St. Paul, waited tables at a 4-star restaurant in the Scottish highlands, worked at a hostel in Switzerland, lived on a Kibbutz (communal farm) in Israel, and have hitchhiked across the USA, Europe, Israel, and Scandinavia. I had no interest in missions or teenagers until I went on Royal Servants. That summer God rocked my world, changed my heart, and readjusted my priorities. I joined Reign Ministries right after in 1983 (yes, that long ago) and have been leading mission trips every year since!
The outdoors (but live in the city–go figure), hiking, canoeing, fishing, and eating cereal for any meal.
My wife and family, reading just about anything, trying new things, and eating Chinese dumplings (Jiaoze).
Working with students, hard travel, intense ministry, and anything to do with a creamy mint/chocolate combination!
I’m random, have a lot of energy, and I am passionate.
