I have been in Ministry for the past 15 years and have a passion for those
Who have been caught up in the cycle of addition and crime and feel that I can help them out of that cycle by helping the to build a relationship with jesus.
God’s grace saved me at age 27. I have been married for 47 years, have 3 daughters and have lived in Rochester most all of my life. I started in jail and prison ministry in 1991 as a volunteer in the Olmsted County Jail where I continue to volunteer weekly. I had the privilege of being a part of founding Rochester Network for ReEntry in 1999. I am thankful for the opportunity I have now to participate in Network for Life Rochester.
I am a Rochester native who is married and have two adult children. I have worked in the construction and computer field for over 40 years. I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ after years of struggling to find the answer to the meaning of life. My desire is to help show others how to accept this free gift and change their life forever. I am excited to be a part of the NFL team where my hope is to help make a difference in one’s life with the programs that are offered.
The day that I committed my life to the lord was in a jail cell in 2010. It changed my life for good. I asked for forgiveness and told God I’m ready for a change please lead me in a new direction. I have been sober now for 8.5 years. God has directed my life. He has given me an amazing wife and 2 awesome kids. I love being the husband and father they need. God is good.
