The Mennonite Church has given me so many gifts. I was mentored and encouraged in my faith by people with a deep faith and lives of self-sacrifice. I have connected with people from other racial and ethnic backgrounds and am blessed by the spiritual blessings I have received. Our 1995 Confession of Faith resonates with my heart and provides a foundation for joining together as a community of faith.
I live in Goshen, IN, and with my wife Sheila and our two children, Mandy and Michael. My wife Sheila and I share a full-time youth pastor position, with a commitment to full-time parenting before our children went to school. Michael is now in kindergarten so I am making a commitment to this project.
