I’ve attended Hope for 21 years and have been active in small group studies, seasonal choir, ushering, and the Saturday Men Group. As an Elder, I hope to connect to and strengthen our congregation through prayer and spiritual support as we go through life together following our Lord Jesus. I recently retired from a 41 year career in chemical process engineering and operations management. I received my Chemical Engineering degree at the University of Minnesota and have worked in Minnesota, Kentucky, and California. My wife Deb and I have two grown, married children and four grandchildren. I enjoy travelling to visit family, gardening, and golf.
