    I am blessed to serve as the Director of Men’s Ministries. I am not new to Divine Redeemer having served as Principal for twenty-one years. During that time I also served as Executive Director for eleven years. I currently serve as Executive Director of Journeys Lutheran School which is the only school in the LCMS that exists to serve students with special needs.

    I am married to Kathy who is a second grade teacher at DRLS. We have three sons, Matthew, married to Krista, Mark, and Jonathan, married to Christine.
