Square-Profile-picI’m the pastor of St. Mark Lutheran Church in Ferndale, CA. If you’re in the area, consider joining us on Sundays!

I’ve written six books, a booklet, and a number of articles that might be of interest to you (see the links above).  In my books I strive to connect truth and story, offering readers a perspective of the world that is rooted in the knowable and absolute truth while exciting the imagination.

In the summer of 2020, I became the host of the popular Christian talk radio show, Cross Defense, which is broadcast worldwide on KFUO and available on your favorite podcast app. You can catch segments of the show on my YouTube channel. I stepped away from hosting Cross Defense in March of 2021 in order to focus on my congregation and our local community.

I’m originally from southwest Wyoming, but after starting a family and working in the oil and gas industry I answered the Lord’s call to the ministry earning my B.A. in Religious Studies from Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and an MDiv from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I’ve served four parishes as a full-time pastor and did a short stint as an Admission Counselor at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN.
