I have also served as a church consultant, and staff member in various places during that time.
I’m delighted to be at WJU in this extraordinary season of its history. The Lord has blessed us with an extraordinary student body, outstanding leadership, and a compelling vision for the future. My wife, Kim, and I have three sons (one still at home with us) and we’re thrilled to be part of this energizing, God-honoring community.
