Where did you grow up?

Sherwood, N.D. is a small town of mostly paved roads two miles south of the Canadian border in roughly the center of North Dakota.


Who is your favorite person in the Bible?

Samuel. He led the Israelites with integrity and humility. I would describe him as the most solid leader in all of the Old Testament.


What’s your secret talent?

I am an impressive folder of clothes, Marie Kondo-style.


What is your favorite way to spend free time?

With a book either in my hand or in my ear.


What do you love about St John Lutheran Church?

When God offers invitations to St. John to be generous, the congregation says YES.

Should we build a community park for the neighborhood? Yes.

Should we give a large gift to the Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center? Yes.

Should we financially support seminarians and first call rostered leaders in Western North Dakota? Yes.

I love St. John’s generous response to God’s call to be Living in Service to Christ.



What is God up to in Dickinson, ND?

In the 15 years I’ve lived in Dickinson, I have seen God come to Dickinson in so many new faces. There is a spirit of newness as an established community has been influenced by the good of new residents, new businesses, new walking and biking trails, new schools, and new healthcare facilities.
