About Me

  • I’ve worked for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship since 1981.
  • I completed my MA in the Philosophy of Religion at Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, MN.
  • Currently, I travel to college campuses across the country doing speaking and training in apologetics and student leadership development.
  • My wife Sharon and I live in St. Paul and we have two wonderful children and seven grandchildren.
  • We are active at Grace Church Roseville where Sharon is in music and women’s ministry, and I’m on the teaching team.
  • A serious golfer, I’ve played the game my whole life. Yeah!

Philosophy of Ministry

I am committed to:

  • InterVarsity’s Doctrinal Basis, Purpose Statement, Core Values and Vision
  • Respectful dialog with “friend and foe” alike in the free exchange of ideas in the University
  • Finding common ground with neighboring ministries and other faiths, without having to agree on everything.
