Get to know the North Central Wisconsin FCA Staff

I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas on the Naval Base where my dad was stationed. We moved back to Eau Claire, WI to start kindergarten and ended up graduating from Eau Claire North and then UW-Eau Claire. I went onto Luther Seminary to become an ordained pastor and while serving in Edgar I started coaching and then started a FCA huddle, coaching at the sports camp in Decorah, going to the couple’s retreats, board member, finally hired to be on staff starting September 2008.

Family: I’m married to Rebekah and have two adult children and two grandsons.

Sports: I played basketball and baseball in high school. I also tried one year of football and cross country. I ended up playing lots of fast pitch softball as a pitcher and now I do lots of running and some biking, some snowshoeing, and love ultimate Frisbee. I am trying to golf, too. I coach girls basketball and softball and do officiating in my spare time—soccer, basketball, softball, and baseball.

FCA's pull on me: I was invited to join FCA my junior year of high school at EC North and it changed my life, in fact it was through FCA that I felt God calling me into ministry. Now ministry has led me back to full time FCA staff where God is doing incredible things in North Central Wisconsin.
