Never before in my life have I been as certain as I am today that I am employed where God wants me. Based on the events that God led me through during the summer of 2011, I have many landmarks that affirm that God wants me here for this season…I hope for many years. My father just retired from teaching math after 50 years of service. So I grew up hearing how he impacted young lives, and I heard his heart for impacting them for the kingdom. Now I have the privilege of doing that in this new career for me. My previous career was primarily spent at American Century Investments doing all kinds of operational duties and finished there as a Director of eCommerce.
I love being involved in a ministry full-time with all that entails: stretching my faith, building relationships with other believers and the community, guiding, counseling, listening, building excitement, and restoring lives. What is most exciting is seeing our students become fulfillments of our Mission and Vision: prepared for life and service to our Lord with a Biblical worldview, Christian character and academic acumen so that they are godly world-changers intent on revitalizing our world.
My wife of 30 years is Cindy, and we have a daughter, Rachel, who is a MCA graduate(2007) and now married and working for Koch Industries as a tax accountant. I love to be active so you will often see me at sporting events. Yes I watch our teams, but I also like to compete so I still play basketball and golf when I can. I grew up in a small rural town in Kansas, so that fostered my love for the outdoors including fishing and hiking, but that is where I also learned building and repair skills that have come in handy both at home and as a side business on occasion. With that background, you will see me working on the facilities and grounds and serving where ever there is a need.
James 1:4-5 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
