Before my freshmen year in high school our family began to be involved at FBC. During my senior year at Hope College I was asked by Pastor Gerten to pray about taking over the student ministries when I graduated. Following the leading of the Lord I took the position for the summer and then continued to serve the youth with passion and love for almost six years. Since 2007 I have served FBC as the associate pastor and look forward to how the Lord continues to move in and through FBC. I am more than blessed to share life and this journey with my wife Joanna and daughter Aubrey.
