  • Favorite places to visit: My wife and I visit San Francisco as often as possible to visit our family; also Madison, Wisconsin, area where we go annually for a family reunion.
  • Activities: We serve regularly at Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville as ABF leaders, enjoy camping, and riding on our Harley Davidson cycle.
  • Why Cedarville: I felt led to Cedarville because I wanted to serve in "full-time Christian work" but not in a church. I love being able to share my biblical perspectives and experiences with students.
