As the Elder Board Chairman this year at Hope I help lead the Congregational Meetings, Elder Board Meetings, and other responsibilities as needed. My desire for the Elder Board is that we see where God is moving at Hope and help the congregation follow his lead. I work at an on-line hobby shop in Stillwater as the Product Team Manager. My wife Kristen and I keep busy at home with our four energetic kids, Abby, Amanda, Sarah and Zach. In my free time you’ll find me working on projects around home, having fun with my kids, driving/flying really cool R/C toys or, if the water isn’t frozen, boating, water-skiing or wake-boarding.
I serve on the Elder Board at Hope Church as the Constitution & Bylaws Chair. I am excited to see the work God is doing at Hope in Community Groups and it is my desire that everyone would experience God's love through deep community. I live in Hudson, WI with my wife, Jill and children, Abby and Sam. When I have free time I am usually researching and playing with technology.
I became an elder in 2016 after serving in many different ministries at Hope. It’s exciting to me that Hope’s mission to make disciples is found consistently throughout each ministry. My wife Karin, and our children, Emily and Andy, love living and serving in our neighborhood near Hope. I have taught mathematics in the community for 20 years at North High School in North St. Paul. I enjoy spending time outdoors and many weekends you will find me cooking (especially BBQ) for family and friends.
I’m currently serving on the Elder Board at Hope Church. I enjoy hearing how BIG God is and all he is doing in the lives of the Hope family – adults, youth, and children. I enjoy opportunities to get to know people and build relationships where God’s love, mercy and grace can shine, where people can come to know Him. I am married to Gudrun and we have two boys, ages 7 and 3. During the work day, I serve the state of Minnesota as an engineer. When I get a chance I like tinkering with things, biking, skiing, motorcycles, and camping with my family.
