I am humbled, honored, and very excited by this opportunity to work more closely with the staff and this faith community.
A little about myself — Katie and I have been married over 11 years and have two children, Isaiah (9) and Lily (6) and make our home in Moorhead. Katie has been a Music Teacher in the DGF School District for ten years and directs the Joyful Noise middle-school here at FLC. Katie and I have sung together many times and in fact that is how we met, singing together at Concordia in the Concordia Choir.
I am the eldest of three children and grew up in East Grand Forks. My father was an English Teacher who also coached speech and directed all theatre productions, and my mother was the Director of Music at Calvary Lutheran and gave piano lessons. I jokingly say I grew up in the front of the theater and the church - but it’s a little true. Over the years I have been involved, on-stage and off-stage, with various area theatre groups and am currently a Board Member and the CFO of Music Theatre Fargo-Moorhead.
Since we have come to FLC, our family has been so blessed and welcomed by the wonderful people who call First Lutheran their church home. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work to return the favor and honor the last line of our Mission Statement: “Our prayer is that you will leave this place with a song in your heart, a little closer to God, and that you have made a friend.” As I continue to get acquainted with my new role, please feel free to reach out and introduce yourself. Or give a call or send an email.
God’s Blessing to you all!
