Biography

I grew up without organized religion and lived my life in the pursuit of personal fulfillment, pleasure, and honor. I achieved success academically and played baseball and football in college. But while in medical school, an encounter with a Christian, and a sense of my own mortality, led me to pick up the Holy Bible. 

After months of reading, questioning, and ultimately praying to know the truth, I learned who I was. There had been no fear of God in my eyes. Judged by the righteous standards of his law, I was guilty and sinful, and under his just condemnation. 

And I learned who God was. The Holy Spirit revealed to me the glory of Jesus Christ, and his surpassing love, most clearly manifested in his crucifixion on my behalf.  

 

Since that time, I have been passionate for the biblical truths preached in the historical reformed churches. My wife and I have two young boys together. I am blessed to serve the community as a physician, and enjoy living in rural Indiana. It is an honor to serve with the diaconate at Immanuel.
