“God graciously opened my eyes to the Truth of His Word and the salvation available to me through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ when I was 26, following years of chasing the meaning of my life through empty philosophy. I was led to the Lord through the consistent example and verbal witness of the Nedervelt family. I have been happily married to their beautiful daughter for over thirty years. God has blessed us with five children aged 13 to 24. I am a graduate of the Universities of Wisconsin-Madison and Illinois-Urbana. I am currently employed by Bayer Crop Science (formerly employed by Monsanto) in St. Louis.
Grace Baptist Church confirmed my calling to serve the congregation as an elder in the fall of 2019. I prayerfully desire to be used by God to “stir up love and good works” first in my own heart and then hearts within this body of believers.”
