1. Why CCW?
Jan and I have been so blessed to have a long view of God transforming power at CCW. Over the past years we've witnessed new life as people come to know Jesus for the first time. We've experienced His Spirit drawing people to mature, serve, and get into real relationships. I know God is at work transforming other Church families, but we are so blessed and partial to be with this one.
2. How do you feel that God has equipped you for ministry?
The Game of Life goes by so quickly, we can just sit in the stands, but to really make an impact and to make disciples we all need to be on a Team. We are so rich with the Team of Elder's, Staff and Servant Leaders at CCW. The Team sharpens, encourages, inspires and keeps me balanced and I trust I do the same for them. It's like ballast stones in the hull of an old sailing Ship that keeps it from tipping over as the winds of the sea drive it forward, and as our Captain Jesus directs our voyage.
3. Tell us a little about your family.
Jan and I are Family rich, with 7 children and 15 grandchildren, we pray and discern how God can continuously use us to make an eternal difference in all their lives.
Favorite hobby/pastime: Jan still loves to feed people and I enjoy reading and spiritually feeding people, so I read and taste test while she cooks. Great combination for me!
