As a Elder, I am committed to helping people understand and embrace Hope’s Disciplemaking Pathway. I weekly attend Hope’s Worship Service (Gather). I am currently reading Romans as a continuing step to “Deepen” my faith. We lead a Community Group (Group). I “Invest” in Hope as an Elder (13+years), teacher, and small group leader. I have a number of continuing developing friendships at the gym, neighborhood, and work where I am seeking through word and deed to “Multiply” Jesus. I have been married to Gail for 29 years. We have two adult children – Sienna and Evan. I grew up in Minneapolis and moved to St. Paul when Gail and I got married. I am a Human Services Coordinator (Social Worker) for St. Paul Public Housing where I assist low-income residents with lease, financial, and family issues.
