Who We Are
While I was stationed in Germany in the Army in 1983, Jesus found me, and I was redeemed. Shortly, after coming to faith in Jesus, He called to become a Pastor. To this end, I enrolled in Bible College in 1984, where I met my wife, Teresa. In 1990, we obeyed God’s calling and went to Germany as church-planting missionaries, taking our one-year-old son Taylor. Our daughter Nicole was born in Germany in 1992. After spending ten years in Germany, Teresa and I came to Medical Lake in June of 2001. Our third child, Jonathan, came to us in 2003.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and the foundation for our faith and practice. Although the Bible is an ancient work, it is still relevant and powerful for today. Each Sunday, as I preach, my desire is to open up the Word of God and make it understandable to the hearers. If your desire is to know God through His Word, I promise you each Sunday I will come prepared to explain to you what God has said in His Word.
