“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephania 3:17

I was born and raised in northern New Jersey, graduated from Eastern Christian High School, then graduated from Dordt College with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. I met my bride, Karen (Heusinkveld), at Dordt, and we were married in June of 1986 after I had moved to Lynden, WA. We have been blessed with three amazing children (Adam, Amanda, Nic) who all graduated from Lynden Christian. For 29+ years I was proud to have served as a police officer for the Lynden Police Department. For over 2 years I drove school bus for the Lynden School District part time. God then called me to Lynden Christian School to fill the position of Supervisor of Building & Grounds/Head Custodian. I have felt His leading throughout my working career and consider it a blessing and a privilege to be part of the support staff here at Lynden Christian.
