BA Philosophy (Drake University)
MDiv. (Fuller Seminary)
I was born and raised in Southern California. During my college days at Drake University, I became involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and after graduation, worked with them as a campus staff member on campuses in North Dakota, California, and Minnesota. I then served for 37 years as a pastor to churches in Florida and Iowa. I am now retired and living in Kissimmee, Florida, with my wife, Cathy. We have three children and six grandchildren.
Ephesians 2:8-9. This verse tells me why Christianity is different from all other religions. Other religions tell me what I must do to be saved, and they leave me wondering if I have done enough. Christianity tells me that it is not what I do, but what God has done that saves me.
