Born and raised in Montana I graduated from the University of Texas in San Antonio and then from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in South Carolina. I have been blessed to be a Pastor at Good Samaritan since 2004 and love all the ways this church lives out its faith in service to our community and to one another. I have been married to my wonderful wife Amy for over 25 years and have two amazing children. My son Tristen has graduated from college and is living out his dream to be a scuba dive instructor and my daughter Kyrie is attending Columbia Univ. in New York. I believe deeply in the mission of our church to “Love God, Love People, and Make a Difference” and see that mission lived out all the time in the lives and ministries of this incredible congregation. If you do not already attend our church I pray you will come and see all the ways God is changing lives and making his love known through this Christian community, and that you will consider making us your church home.
