After growing up in Southern Michigan I moved to Homer in 1996 to attend Alaska Bible Institute. It was here in Homer that I fell in love.
I fell in love with my wife Erin and we were married at the end of the Homer Spit. Later I fell in love with our two little girls (easy enough to do). I’m so thankful for the family God has given me and I appreciate so much doing life with them.
It was here in Homer, while attending ABI that I learned to love the Scriptures. To this day, almost twenty years later, I still draw from the insights given by my teachers and my study during that season. It was here in Homer that I truly learned to enjoy the Lord through the truth of his word.
And then, of course, I fell in love with Homer itself. Not only is the view breathtaking but the unique community of people is equally impressive. Homer has a collection of individuals like nowhere on the earth. What a fun, special mix. You already know this to be true. I often warn those traveling through; “be careful, Homer has a way of getting in your blood”.
I count it a privilege to serve as pastor of this church, in this town, teaching and applying God’s word by God’s Spirit. Together, may we do a work with God that requires his faithfulness, our obedience and results in our mutual enjoyment.
