I grew up on a farm south of Winterset, Iowa. I attended a very small country church (which is now part of the Madison County Historical Complex), where I was led to the Lord. After college I attended the American Institute of Business (AIB) and met my wife, Janet. After working in retail management for several years, I went back to AIB and got a degree in Computer Programming. I have worked as a programmer at IMT Insurance since 1993. I have been a part of New Hope Church since its early days, and am passionate about the New Hope family. I also founded Team RunFree (an organization which helps physically disabled individuals experience the joy of running). Janet and I have 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren.

Things I’m Thankful For:

Of course my family, a body that works, friends who don’t scare off easily … and coffee.

I Enjoy:

Working in my ‘man shop’, running, pancakes, deer hunting, eating samples at Costco, spending time with my wife, and playing with my grandkids (not necessarily in that order).
