 I am honored that the Lord has led me to serve the people of these two parishes and to help the Pastor, Fr. Ken Popp, provide 
 Pastoral care and leadership.  I have been married for 25+ years to my best friend, Mary Kay, and we have three children, Ruth, Beth and Charles. Our unofficial family motto has become, “Remember, life is an adventure and that is OK if you remember Who is in control, if you let Him.” Among other things, our adventure has included 20 years of parish ministry, a Masters in Theology, meeting many people longing for closeness to the Lord, seeing great acts of God, and a warm welcome from the parish communities here.
