Jill, Alex, Aaron and I are very excited to be here in Sherwood, and be a part of Saint PaulLutheranChurch. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and working with you as we bring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to our community.
This has been a long journey for me and my family; I have been a full-time student for the last five years. Before I went back to school, I served in the U.S. Air Force for twenty years, and traveled all over the world. The best assignment of my military career however was the eight years I spent inMountain Home,Idaho. I met my wife Jill there, and was confirmed, baptized and married at Faith Lutheran Church.
I discovered very quickly, not only was I adopted into Christ’s family through baptism, I was also adopted into the Lutheran family. What a wonderful family it is! The love, care, and support we are receiving here is proof we are one family in Jesus Christ. While my Air Force days are behind me, I’m still interested in anything that has to do with airplanes. I also like the outdoors, and I look forward to some hiking and camping in this beautiful state ofOregon. I thank God for bringing my family here safely, and may He bless all of us as we serve Him together.
