I have a crazy and amazing life!
I grew up in an awesome log cabin, surrounded by siblings (11 of them, 9 of which are younger than me) and fun, happy days. We spent our summers playing in the two creeks flowing behind the house. At the age of 12 I started working in the printing business (ExecutivePrintingCorp.com) which my dad had started a few years before.
Summer was filled with playing and working . . . sweeping floors, running letterpress, etc. Spring, fall and winter were filled with school, sitting beside the wood stove reading and sometimes working in the evening.
As I grew older, I began participating in short term missions trips. First it was Haiti when I was 16, to build a church. Then Taiwan twice when I was 17 & 18. From there my interest moved to Africa, which resulted in 3 trips to Ghana in 2000-2001.
I took some time off from traipsing around the globe and spent a year and a half at Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute. I studied Bible, theology and dipped my toes in the craziness known as biblical Greek and made a ton of friends.
Since I left bible school in the spring of 2006, life has been far from boring. There was the summer I spent working in construction in Harrisonburg, VA. The time I spent working in and managing our pre-press dept. and as production manager at Executive Printing.
I have not completely stopped traveling. From time to time the travel bug bites and I respond. In 2009 I spent 12 days in Uganda, handing out medical supplies and doing prison ministry. The summer of 2010, my wife and I were privileged to serve as administrators of Living Hope’s orphanage, school and other outreaches in Ghana. I am currently working as an account manager at Executive Printing. On the side I do some marketing consulting for some local companies here in Lancaster. I spend lots of time with my wife Sheila, and my sons William and Pierre. Enjoying life as I fix up my “new” house in Lancaster City, and connecting with the people at Life Church Lancaster.
