Deacon: Technology, Finance
Born on July 9 in Leo, IN. I was saved at the age of 16 thanks to my best friend inviting me to Grabill missionary church. It was in 1990 we joined Fort Wayne Baptist Temple which is now New Hope Baptist Church. I changed jobs in 2000 and went to work for Pro Systems LLC in Churubusco. I was at Pro Systems until shortly after my brother Greg passed away in July of 2014 from ALS.I felt God’s undeniable hand wrapped around my heart. He told me to leave Pro Systems and go out and touch as many lives as you can with “My Light”. I now am self-employed serving at New Hope.
