I joined staff in 2016, after 5 years serving in roles with Geneva Camp and Retreat Center and the Reformed Church in America. I hold masters and doctoral degrees from Western Theological Seminary in Holland but my greatest learning has come by way of wise saints and other seasoned travelers who share a passion for impact, truth and compassion.
I have a deep love for the church and a sincere desire to equip others to serve and celebrate the cause of Jesus. I believe that God intends his church to bless the community as well as be a voice for those on the margins.
My wife Kathleen and I have been blessed with four children of our own, as well as hundreds of others who call us teacher, coach, mentor and friend. We enjoy exercise, cross-cultural travel, building relationships with others, and growing greater capacity for kingdom influence.
