I grew up in a Christian family and accepted Christ at the age of ten. I was a student of the Scriptures and loved to teach God's Word. I have been involved in the ministry of EFBC since 1957 when my parents moved from Portland to Estacada. My wife, Annette, and I, have been married nearly 50 years and we have four adult children, four amazing grand-daughters and a grandson.! I love to grow vegetables and I have a garden the size of Rhode Island! Every year I try growing something new, this last year I am trying my hand at growing celery.
