I became a believer in Jesus Christ in February of 1970. It was a dramatic encounter with Christ that led me to Bible College to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. While in College, the call to Pastor came into focus, but not in the traditional sense; I was called to be a church planting pastor. Once the Missoula Church was established, numerous churches over the years have been planted. For over 40 years I have enjoyed equipping men and women for ministry with my wife Marlene. Together we have been blessed with two children and three grandchildren.
