My wife Debbie and I both grew up in Mora, Mn. We have/are raising our 4 children (Emily married to Chris, Max, Kennadie and Tayah) here for the last 25+ years.
Our life together has been a journey, where God has given us many opportunities to take great steps of faith. When we have followed God’s calling, we have learned what a faithful God we serve. We are an imperfect family, so grateful for a forgiving and loving Father, who gives us opportunities to be used by Him each day.
It is my desire to be a part of a church full of sinners who are real and seek to follow God. A church that reads God’s word and simply does what it says. Love God and Love people. It is our hope to serve alongside the people of Trio Church and our community, building relationships and loving others well.
