In July 2011, God put a compelling and beautiful vision before my wife, Jen, and I to birth a church in South Haven to reach the unchurched and de-churched people of the area. In January 2012 we moved to South Haven from Adrian, MI and began assembling a launch team. On September 23, 2012, this little team of 39 people launched LifeBridge Church and we have been on this amazing journey since. We are having a blast leading this gathering of Christ-followers to build relational bridges to people far from God.
I am from the Kalamazoo area and have spent most of my life in South West Michigan. We have been on this journey with our three amazing sons and are excited to be able to raise our family here as we are on mission together. We love South Haven and have no desire to go or be anywhere else – except for vacations in which case the Caribbean in the winter is an ideal choice. I enjoy playing just about any sport and love a good beach day.
I personally have been in vocational ministry leadership for over 23 years and enjoy it more today than when I started. I just can’t get enough of watching people discover new life, transformed by the grace and power of God through Jesus Christ. I love what God has allowed me to do and I love my church.
