WHEN DID YOU BEGIN SERVING AT TRINITY?
I have served in some deacon capacity for about twenty-five years.
WHY HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO SERVE AT TRINITY? WHAT LED YOU HERE?
I have been committed to this local body for more than thirty-five years. It is and has been my home church in those years.
I want God to use me for His glory. Serving at Trinity Fellowship is part of the way God is using me. In my younger years, fresh out of college, I came to Portland. I became involved with a young and vibrant church with new ideas. That church was a predecessor of Trinity Fellowship.
WHAT HAS GOD BEEN GIVING YOU A PASSION AND BURDEN FOR?
I have been a believer for more than five decades. For almost four decades I have been a committed follower/disciple of Jesus. I think I can mentor younger men as they follow Jesus. I think as a couple my wife and I can mentor younger couples as they lead their families in the faith. Jesus said the gospel will go to all peoples before he will return. That means disciples must be made among all people groups. I want to to do my part in seeing those disciples made. I think this church has participated in that work by choosing to adopt a people group and sending workers who have committed their lives to the work.
WHAT ABOUT YOU PERSONALLY WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
In my later twenties I did cultural research in Sudan. I lived about five miles from the White Nile in a very remote area. I was the only person with a vehicle for miles around. I lived with a family in a mud hut and worked on an ethnography of the people group – Southern Bari People.
I am a Freight Forwarder. I help people move cargo all around the world.
I am an avid cyclist.
