Though born in Columbia SC, Clemson SC is our claim to fame. Fran (my wife) and I both graduated from Clemson University in 1992. My degree was mechanical engineering, but I must acknowledge I am no engineer. My vocational path quickly shifted when a year after graduation we moved to Ukraine where we spent the next four out of five years in different cities along the Black Sea. During that incredible season, we served in various roles, to help begin and grow Jesus communities in these former Soviet cities. Along the way, I realized my desperate need to better understanding the story I was telling and Book I was teaching so we returned to the states where I attended Covenant Seminary in St. Loius MO. There have been many twists and turns through the years, as we have worked with new and established churches in Northern CO. Having lived in Longmont and Loveland over the last 19 years, we have now landed in Greeley.
Fran and I have four adult-ish children, one amazing daughter-in-law, two dogs and a cat. As much as we love the CO mountains, our favorite place to relax is the beach... any beach... anywhere... anytime.
