I love God and I love people! I was ordained in 1986 and have served congregations in Idaho, Montana and now in Utah. My passions include teaching and preaching God’s Word, loving and caring for people in all walks of life through pastoral ministry. Music is important to me. I often use both guitar and voice in leading worship. I enjoy the old hymns, contemporary Christian music and good old fashion Gospel music (Blue Grass).
My BA in psychology is from St Leo University (Little Creek Extension) Norfolk, VA. My M. Div. degree is from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN. I served on active duty for seven years with the US Navy.
My wife, Reba and live in Draper. We enjoy the out of doors, family times and grandkids. Life is good!
Elim cannot afford a full-time pastor so I also serve as the pastor of congregational care for Christ United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City.
