Engagement Picture

i’ve been a youth pastor for over 13 years now and been married to dawn since june of 2006. this is our “official” engagment picture. isn’t she amazing?

i must say, the youth pastor part has been great, but the married part is the best and more than i could have ever imagined!

when i’m not being lazy, i do like to kayak, backpack, spend way too much time on my macbook pro, read, listen to my iPod, eat out [hence my enormity!] and hang out in places like roseland and downtown holland. [both quite different] i’m a california native, transplanted to michigan’s west coast by way of iowa. [go figure!]

three things i miss about california: sunshine, family and good mexican food. ok a fourth would be a double double!

three things that are better about michigan. $100,000 homes, 3 minute commute to work, open space!

  5. Hello… I noticed you went through the process to attend Fuller DMIN track.
    I am doing that process right now. I am just answering the questions, trying to pick a sample paper from my seminary years, and praying this is what I am do… how did it turn out for you? Are you in the cohort? If so, how is it going? Do you have any advice?
