Treasurer. We have lived in rural Arlington for 16 years. I am thankful for my wife, Joni, son Zachary, daughter, Brianna.

I came to know the Lord as my personal Savior in 1990 and was baptized in North Long Lake in Brainerd, MN.

I went to college at Brainerd Community College and Northwestern College in Roseville, MN. I am currently employed as a staff technician at TEL-FSI Inc. in Chaska, MN.

I enjoy seeing people find the Lord as their personal Savior and grow in that relationship.  I just recently joined the Gideons not only to help people to come to faith in Christ, but also for me to grow in my faith. I also  enjoy fishing, hunting, and tinkering in the shop.

I have a wonderful wife, Cindy and we have been married 18 years. We have 2  boys, Nathan who is 17 and Cody, who is 15. I became a Christian when I was 25, and it has been an adventure ever since. I have been on several mission trips to places like the Philippines, Ecuador and Mexico.  I Have a BA degree from Oak Hills Christian College in Bemidji, Minnesota. That's where I met Cindy. I have been a member of Creekside Community Church for the last 10 years and an Elder  as long. I am on a preaching schedule every other month at the Oak Terrace Care facility in Gaylord. My employment is with Sibley County as County Ag Inspector and Ditch Technician. We live in Gaylord, Minnesota, so stop and visit!

Our daughter Alaina is 15 and our son Quintin is 12. I have been an electrician for 20 years. Iā€™m currently employed at Laketown Electric. I started my journey as a Christian when I was a young teenager. My mom gave me a prayer booklet with the prayer of salvation. As a teen I went on three mission trips. When I was 25 I went on another mission trip as a chaperone. My family and I have been attending Creekside Community Church for four years. We became members of the church in 2017. I have been on the elder team for a year.
