Hello, MRC! I am so glad to finally be here! Word’s cannot express my gratitude for you all and my excitement to be your pastor. Stacy and I recently moved from Holland, MI. She finished working at Holland Hospital as a charge nurse and I finished up my time at Western Seminary. Stacy will be an RN at the Orange City Hospital.
My hobbies are all over the board and include drinking coffee (if that is considered a hobby?), biking, fishing, corn hole, ping pong, and hiking. I also love cooking and listening to music.
Finally, my personal objective is to serve the Lord wholeheartedly with my gifts; to be a witness to those who do not know Christ; and to nurture those who do by urging, comforting and encouraging them to live lives worthy of the kingdom (1 Thessalonians 2:12). It is my prayer that MRC will be a place where the gospel is preached and lived out, a place where all are welcome, and a place where we use our gifts for the glory of God.
