I was born and raised in Minatare, a very small town in western Nebraska, in a Presbyterian home. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at church camp when I was twelve and then was baptized and joined the church. God has blessed and protected me throughout my life. I was ordained as a deacon and then as an elder at the First Presbyterian Church in Burley. My faith has become more important to me as the years pass. I pray that God will equip me with what I need to serve the people of Christ Presbyterian Church.
