SE WI Area Representative
I grew up in Brookfield, Wisconsin, attended Brookfield Central High School and graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 1978. I then worked for Playmakers, Inc. from 1979-1982 before entering seminary. I graduated from the International School of Theology in 1986 with a Master of Divinity degree, and then served on the pastoral staff at Elmbrook church in Brookfield, WI. from 1988-2006 as Pastor of the Sports Ministry. In 2007 I joined the staff of FCA as the Area Representative in Southeast Wisconsin.
Family: Linda and I have been married for 25 years and have two adult children—Leah and Jaime.
Sports: In high school I played football, basketball, track and baseball, and then played all four at different times during my college career. Following college, I traveled with a Christian basketball team (Sports Ambassadors) on several short-term missions trips—Africa in 1979, Guatemala in 1980, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong in 1983, China in 1984 and the Philippines in 1987. I have also coached boys basketball at Brookfield Central H.S. since 1987.
My FCA connection started when I attended an FCA sports camp at St. Olaf College during high school and decided to follow Jesus Christ. I then served at several FCA camps as a huddle leader during my college days. Later, as a sports ministry pastor, I partnered with FCA many times and am now delighted to be serving athletes and coaches through the FCA ministry here in Southeast Wisconsin.
