Growing up in Ohio, I idolized basketball great Pete Maravich and delighted in delivering a pass to an open teammate.
Following college at Bowling Green State University, I served the first 25 years of my career connecting partners with community-transforming projects in conjunction with faith-based higher education, media, church and worldwide-missions focused non-profits. An intense battle with hodgkins Lymphoma towards the end of this season of life underscored the truth that each day is a gift from God--and delighting in His plans brings ultimate peace.
I now enjoy exploring innovative ways to provide God's Word to Bible-less people in my role with The Seed Company--an organization that helps accelerate the translation of God's Word into languages throughout the world. I am passionate about sharing opportunities for partners to intentionally invest and pray so that God's Word will transform lives in the remaining 1800languages who don’t have even one verse of the Bible in their mother tongue. Walking through life’s journey as a Christ-follower with my wife Paula since our marriage in 1982, we are parents of two adult married--and a son in college at Cedarville University in Ohio. We currently live near Arlington, TX but remain avid fans of The Ohio State Buckeyes.
