I grew up in southern Minnesota, a member of Hollandale CRC. I attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, so that I could participate in Air Force ROTC. I served as an Air Force officer for 6 years. My last station was in Colorado Springs, CO and we’ve remained here since. My wife, four boys, and I are members of Cragmor CRC, where I have been active in worship and church leadership (not always as much as I’d like, but sometimes more).
