I’ve been called to be a servant of God’s Word, a proclaimer of the good news of Jesus Christ, a shepherd to the people of Trinity and, with congregational leaders, a collaborator in extending Trinity’s witness and serving in the world around. “So help me God,” I have prayed since my ordination into the pastoral ministry. Without God’s help, this calling would be beyond me. With God’s help, I experience great joy in it.
My interests include God, faith, Church, family and friends, bicycling, travel, the seashore, deserts, mountains, music, theology, German language, news and views.
Education and experience: Bachelor of Music degree from St. Olaf College, Master of Divinity degree from Luther Seminary, additional post-graduate study in the Protestant and Roman Catholic theology departments of the University of Vienna. I’ve served congregations in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, and California over the past three decades.
I am blessed to share faith and life and to serve with faithful, kindhearted, fun-loving people. Week after week, I get to see people caring deeply for the mission of Christ’s Church, for one another, and for the surrounding community and world. Each week brings tremendous variety; no two days are the same!
