I am a husband, dad and grandad, as well as a minister who enjoys reading, writing, cycling, walking and gardening. I am currently in a vocational and residential transition to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where I serve as the Executive Minister of the American Baptist Churches of the Dakotas. I have previously served three congregations as solo or lead pastor, and was a regional minister for another chapter.
Much of what I write about pertains to leadership in a congregational setting and is shared in hopes of engaging congregations and church leaders in general in the challenging and rewarding work of ministry today. I welcome all readers.
