A Bit of History…

I was ordained to the ministry in 1951 in Wisconsin. Along with my wife Verna we have served in continuous ministry as Pastor, Teacher and Administrator for fifty-six years.

I have served as a pastor in Wisconsin, Oregon, California, Missouri, Germany and Hawaii. Additionally I’ve served in missions in Liberia and Nigeria, the Republic of South Africa, Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany.

Verna and I have taught in Schools of Evangelism and Discipleship Training Schools in Switzerland, Germany, France, Portugal and the USA with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and Teen Challenge.

I have had many other titles and positions in the ministry along the way including: co-founder of the Genesis Discipleship Training Center in California; Academic Dean of Continental Bible College in Brussels, Belgium; Academic Dean of the International Correspondence Institute of the Assemblies of God; Director of Training for Eurasia Teen Challenge.

I have traveled extensively in a teaching ministry in churches throughout Europe for many years and I am presently traveling in a teaching ministry wherever God opens doors. We have had recent ministry in West Africa, The Czech Republic, Portugal, Germany and Switzerland.
