Autobiography:I grew up in Rural Minnesota and graduated from Hamline University and Garrett-Evangelical Seminary both with honors. I am an avid reader and consume several books a week. A few favorites recently were "Sifted" and "Love Wins".

I am black belt in Tai Kwon Do and am active in community activities and helping the poor. I helped to start an orphanage in Mexico and continue to visit every year at Christmas. I am active in Rotary Club and Executive Director of Life Rebuilders in Lakeville. I enjoy spending time with my family and time at our cabin with my three kids. My wife Deb co-pastors with me.
