About Me

MEI’m the husband of Ann; father of Rebecca, Jonathan and Elizabeth; pastor of Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church; lifelong (25 years, at least) of Mac computers; and probably a bit of a rarity with the EFCA. I enjoy reading from the Puritans, Spurgeon, Lloyd-Jones, and lots of other “dead guys” whose faith lives on because it is grounded in the Word of God.

Just in case you’re curious…

I’m a sinner saved by grace. I’m simultaneously justified and a sinner. I’ve been called by God’s grace to be a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m joyfully the husband of one wife and the father of three children.

I was born in central Iowa, raised in a godly home with two first generation Christian parents. The Evangelical Free Church of Madrid, Iowa was where I heard the teaching of the Word of God all my “growing up” years. There were some of the most dear and faithful servants of our Lord serving there, who will never be known around the world, but will hear (or, as is the case for some already, have heard) their Lord say, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into your rest.”

When I was between the ages of 12 & 13, I attended Bible camp at Twin Lakes in northwest Iowa. Pastor Don Stover (another of those saints who has entered God’s rest) was telling us the story of Pilgrim’s Progress using blacklight flannel graph (really cool high-tech in 1970!). When Christian gets to the foot of the cross and his burden of sin rolls away into the empty tomb, God had me. I was gloriously converted to Jesus Christ, my Savior.

God’s call to the ministry was a long, gradual process through which He used many people to lead me and confirm within me His will to be a minister. He also used one or two key people to bring me to the doctrines of grace. I had been in ministry for about 6 years when the light of these truths were shown so brightly to me. I trust that I have grown in my understanding of them and have caused others to rejoice in the absolute free sovereign grace of our God.

Well, enough about me. Come on in. Enjoy yourself (I hope) Leave a comment or two. Contact me if you wish. Oh, and don’t mind the clutter!
