B.S. in Speech Communication, North Dakota State University; M.A. in Theological Studies, Bethel Seminary (in process)
I am originally from Becker, MN and then after high school I spent eight years in Fargo, ND where I met my wife. Now, my wife and I have lived in the Twin Cities for two years and consider it to be home.
Favorite things about Bethel Seminary:
I have a deep passion for learning about God and His Word, and I love that Bethel Seminary provides a place to engage with Scripture and theology in an academically rigorous setting. I also have a passion for the local church, and I love that Bethel Seminary is keenly aware of its role in preparing pastors, ministry leaders and people who want to grow in their abilities to minister the gospel effectively. Finally, I appreciate the diversity of perspective present at Bethel Seminary. It has provided a great opportunity for me to engage with people who think differently than me in ways that show respect and appreciation for one another.
Before working at Bethel:
I worked at North Dakota State University for three years as the Seim Hall Director, and then moved to the Twin Cities and worked at Bethel University as the Arden Village Resident Director, overseeing a building that houses primarily sophomore undergraduate students. External to my places of employment, I have also been part of two church plants at various levels of commitment and leadership.
