What do you do at Elmbrook?
I have the privilege of helping people get connected here at Elmbrook, whether to newcomer events, small groups, serving opportunities or large Elmbrook events. I am also responsible for the Membership Class as well as baptism classes and services. In short, I get to help people connect with this body of believers called Elmbrook.
What brought you to Elmbrook, and/or what has prepared you for this role?
I was invited to come and oversee the new "Assimilation" (Connections) ministry at Elmbrook in 1993. Prior to coming to Elmbrook, I pastored a church in Menominee, Michigan, for five years as well as being a youth pastor at Elmbrook for 4 years. These ministry experiences, along with seminary training, have prepared me for my role.
