I look forward to the years ahead and having the opportunity of serving here at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Faith and ministries have been  wonderful special gifts. "I see Christ in His majesty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and I am humbled and awed. I see Christ in His mercy, my Savior and Savior to the world, and I am eternally greatful. I see Christ in His loving ministry and mission to the world, a work that He has extended to us to help complete, and I am honored to serve in His name." I grew up and went to school in South St. Paul, MN. Then I attended and graduated from the University of Minnesota. My seminary training was at Luther-Northwestern Seminaries in St. Paul. Parishes I have served include a three-point parish in Underwood, ND, and eighteen year ministry at Faith Lutheran in Valley Cinty and most recently, a more specialized ministry at Eagle Lake Lutheran in rural Battle Lake, MN. My wife, Cindy, and I have two children, Matt and Amanda. We also hold very dear as part of our family, a young lady we were given guardianship of when she was a sophomore in high school, Tiffany Germann. All of them have now moved on to prepare for or are now working in their chosen professions. I love the Lord. I love my family. I love what I do and the people I get to meet. I invite and welcome you to come and visit, to come and become engaged in the congregational life and ministry and mission going on here.
