I joined the OSLC family in the summer of 2016 and have been so grateful to be here as your pastor. Before coming to Sebeka, I served congregations in Clinton, Iowa and Mesa, Arizona. While I was in college at Concordia-Moorhead, I worked for five summers at Pathways Camp Emmaus - just up the road from church. Coming to Sebeka is like a homecoming in so many ways because of my time at Pathways. My wife, Megan, shares her passion for faith and families as a pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Wadena. We are blessed with two beautiful, energetic kids - Lillian and Milo - who have been a tour de force from day one!
In my free time, I love reading (it's my lifelong goal to read *all* the books), cooking, golfing, playing guitar, cheering for the Minnesota Twins, and most importantly, spending time with my family - preferably on a patio or pontoon.
