"I'm the youngest of nine children. We were raised in a Christian home which was also a sprawling farm and ranching operation in South Dakota. I put my faith, hope and trust in Jesus Christ in June 1978 at the age of four, and was later baptized at the age of 10 at Carter Gospel Fellowship by Pastor Elmer Reimer.
"Elmer's son Dave started Grace Community Church in Newton, and when I arrived in the area it just seemed natural to attend there. I served as leader, usher, and parking attendant while at Grace. Here at New Anthem, I enjoy serving on worship team with my family. I'm excited to be a part of a church in my community and look forward to the next season of growth at New Anthem."
