About Me: 

I've been active member in the CRC since 1992. I've been part of and clerked for the Classical Home Missions Commitee here in Classis Lake Superior. I was a Licensed Exhorter. Before that I was a minister in an independent Charismatic Church for ten years. Presently I am a Ministry Associate at Bethel CRC in Princeton, Mn. I occasionally write articles for the Banner's "Reformed Matters". I love to read and write. I'll do op-ed pieces in a variety of local newspapers. I'm in the process of publishing a novel. I coached hockey here in Princeton for over tens years. And I was baptized and confirmed in the ELCA. I studied under Dr. Francis Schaeffer at L'Abri in Switzerland and lived in a Kibbutz in Israel were I studied Hebrew during the Yom Kippor War.

Interests: 

I love to work out. I weight lift, run and swim. I write and love to read, mostly histories, biographies and theologically oriented books. I used to coach Hockey, virtually year round. I coached, co-coached or managed over 33 teams in an eleven year period of time. I love getting together with people to pray and worship-a residual of my Charismatic past- particularly in small groups. I sing and play guitar and am part of our church's worship teams.

  • To begin with, the old Psalter, before 1936, was just that, only the Geneva Psalters. The CRC didn't sing hymns before that, or at least weren't supposed to. It was somewhere in this time period...

  • Bev;

    I can’t wait to read about the life changing spiritual experience you’ve had. I love to hear about this from people who have come to know our Lord in a deeper spiritual way. I suspect...

  • Bev, perhaps we should start another discussion group on the issue of the gifts, prophecy, tongues in the church today but to keep on point here: Can you see my reasons for wanting to be in a...
