I started this blog as a place where I can put my thoughts down from time to time. These are not polished by any means and some of them may even be completely random. But nonetheless they are my thoughts on life, ministry, theology and whatever else there is in my head.
I’m married with 2 kids. I like playing sports, especially tennis. I like to be outdoors when the weather is nice. Camping, biking, campfires, all that sort of stuff!
I served as the Director of Youth Ministry at Bethel Lutheran Church in Rochester, MN from 2003 until Sept. 2013. I am currently the Director of Teen Ministry at First Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids, IA, helping lead the Middle School Ministry and High School Ministry.
I received my Master’s Degree from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN, in Children, Youth & Family Ministries. My time in study at Luther was both a great challenge and energizer for ministry. I came away with an underlying sense of the church needing to challenge our past and move into the future. Some of what I post here will be with a critical eye, but also a reflection of the internal conflict happening in my own being.
