My story

I served as a Converge pastor for 33 years. During that time, I ministered in an established church as associate pastor and senior pastor for 10 years. Then, I planted a church and served as its senior pastor for 23 years. In January 2014, I heard that Converge could plant a church for $333. In July of that year, I traveled to India to see this church planting strategy in action. There I saw the great need in the 10/40 Window where people have very little access to the gospel message, and I met national leaders who gave their all to advance the gospel in their communities. God used that experience to touch my heart deeply, and in January 2016, I became Converge's Director of Church Planting Partnerships. I work closely with The Timothy Initiative, mobilizing Converge churches into a fruitful partnership to plant churches in the least-reached regions of the world. I serve on the U.S. Engagement Team for Converge International Ministries. This means that I seek to connect our Converge churches with the 170-plus missionaries and their initiatives around the world. Better together, we seek to live out the vision of "asking God for a gospel movement among every least-reached people group in our generation." I am a church planting practitioner, working with ministry leaders in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota. We are using The Timothy Initiative church planting strategy to create a church planting movement among the immigrant population in the Twin Cities and beyond.
