Head of Staff
I have been pastor of Pine Ridge since 1994. Prior to moving to Kansas City, I served for eight years as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Dallas Center, Iowa, a small community just outside of Des Moines. I have been married to Marcia since 1985 and we have two children.
I graduated from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago in 1986 and completed my Doctor of Ministry at St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City in 2008.
I count it as a great blessing to be the pastor of Pine Ridge and look forward to the possibilities God holds for this church. I enjoy my involvement as an Oblate at Mt. St. Scholastica in Atchison, KS.
For quiet meditation during the day I recommend the site, "Sacred Space"
