I was born a sinner into a family of sinners who were saved in the same dramatic search-and-rescue way that I was. I am privileged to serve as the Vice President of Mobilization at ABWE Intl. after having previously served as missionary, pastor, international business entrepreneur, and EVP of Northland International University. I have been married to Tara since 1998 and we have been blessed with 4 children (oddly, also sinners). I love the Church, and the I love the Commission of Christ to spread his fame and Good News of reconciliation to every people group on earth.
I love Uyghurs, good books, friends, and preaching. I speak Mandarin Chinese badly enough to get lost in a deep conversation. I am blessed to have friends who are smarter than me, a church that is more patient than me, and a wife who is simply better than me.
I like the Green Bay Packers, and think baseball is the greatest game ever invented. I believe that pitchers who throw breaking balls are all secret magicians.
I’m a penitent prodigal who has been given a gift I don’t deserve from a Father that gave me an inheritance that wasn’t mine. Thank you Jesus.
