Position: Senior Pastor, Lord of Life Lutheran Church
Phone: 630-513-5325 ext.39
Favorite Bible Verse: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Dt. 6:5
Ministry Passion: My ministry passion is simply to minister from the overflow. I find myself so incredibly blessed to be called to connect with Jesus and to build and to grow my relationship with Jesus and then to share with others the joy that Jesus brings into my life. I love to see others experience the touch and the presence of God in new and fresh ways like never before. What a privilege to be a part of transforming lives for eternity.
Why am I at Lord of Life: The short answer is that God has called me to this church. The longer answer is that this is the family I love. I could not imagine myself anywhere else. I was once asked the question if I was not the pastor of the church would I still be a part of this church family. The answer is 100% absolutely yes. God is moving and active through the Church in this place and the people are hungry and open to follow God’s leading.
Other things about me: I love to golf, although I am not nearly as good as I used to be. Pastors do a bit more than preach on Sunday morning. I don’t have the time to put into the game that I once did.
Besides Golf, my wife calls me a geek. I am fascinated by the possibilities of technology. My weapons of choice are currently my iPhone and Macbook Pro.
I strive to be well read. Three books which have had a significant impact upon me recently are The Missional Renaissance by Reggie McNeal, The Divine Mentor by Wayne Cordiero, and Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt.
