I have been with CTK Nampa for most of the years since 2008 and am honored to be on the leadership team, working with a pastor who is truly a “pastor”. I am the old guy on our team for whom “elder” is increasingly accurate outside our church! I am the proud father of four adult children and five grandchildren, and have worked as a claims adjuster in the insurance industry for 37 years while being a bi-vocational pastor in church planting ventures in my early years, and a “pastor at large” in various “third places” like brew pubs, cigar shops and wherever else I meet people. Along the way I obtained a Masters in Theology from Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA (2001) which fueled my passion for studying the Bible as “the story we find ourselves in” and understanding the narrative themes (theology) of that Story. I also have a passion for history, philosophy, literature and culture, and hope you will join us as we learn, grow and enjoy life together in the community of Jesus-Followers that is Christ the King, Nampa.
