It is an honor to serve on the Elder Board. I grew up attending Hope, and though I lived out of state for 15 years, when I returned to Minnesota with my wife and two kids, it was wonderful to also return to Hope. I have a passion for making disciples, following the principles of generational evangelism that we see in 2 Timothy 2:2. Since returning to Hope, I have served as an adult leader with the high school youth group, as well as a musician on the worship team. When I’m not at church or out flying for work, I try to use my time serving my family or meeting with other men to encourage them in their walk with Jesus.
