After serving parishes in North Dakota, Illinois, St. Louis, Omaha and Arvada, my time at Concordia began in July of 2006, and Jeanette and I have loved everything about Concordia ever since. The people are warm and welcoming, the leaders mission-minded and committed and the staff highly gifted and supportive.
My wife, Jeanette, is a retired public elementary school principal and now works part-time at Bethlehem Lutheran School in Lakewood.
Special gifts of God to us are our family – David and his wife Heather and their children Abby, Emily, Ethan and Sophie in Bloomington, Indiana, and our daughter Kathi and her husband Jonathan in Denver. I’m convinced that God is good – all the time!
I was raised in Arizona, went to school in California, and then served my internship right here at Concordia Lutheran Church, Lakewood, CO, back in 1990. That same year, in a whirlwind of a courtship, I met and married the love of my life, Angie, and like the Clampetts we “loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly” (actually it was Fallbrook, CA). From there we moved to Texas, and then in ‘98 God moved us right back here! Along the way we’ve been blessed with two awesome kids (our daughter, Emily, and son, Cai) a wonderful son-in-law (Dillon), and a beautiful granddaughter (Olivia). We are truly blessed and humbled to serve God with the people here at Concordia and we are excited about the Kingdom work he has set before us!
I joined the Concordia team in the Summer of 2014, and am enjoying working with the wonderful staff and all of the beautiful children and their families.
I’ve been married for two years and my husband is one of the football coaches at Green Mountain High School. We are so excited to be part of this amazing community.
I have a degree in Child and Family Relations with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I have been working in the early childhood field for 15 years and I love this age group. Being able to guide young chilcren, spiritually and academically, is a joy to me.
After moving to Colorado from Idaho 6 years ago, I have been truly blessed by what God has provided. With God’s breathtaking views all around us, I cannot get enough of the beautiful outdoors that Colorado has to offer.
My husband, Brent, a Colorado native is an owner and head coach of a local USA Swim team. He has a true servant’s heart and is a wonderful leader. We live in Lakewood with our two dogs Lucy and Fin.
