Autobiography:I grew up as a Presbyterian in Worthington, Minnesota--very involved in athletics and music. I received a Political Science Degree from Carleton in 1986. I worked as an Organizer for the farm worker movement in California and for ACORN in Inner-City Chicago and Minneapolis. Graduated from seminary from Union in New York. I served a successful Redevelopment in Plainview, Minnesota for 16 years. While there we doubled the congregation size and built a million dollar building while staying very involved in the community. I have served as the Organizing Pastor of Chain of Lakes for three years.

I love to read, run, go to the Twins and music concerts
