I became a Christian when I was 5 years old and made a new commitment to the Lord at the age of 16. I've been attending Shannon Park regularly for about 4 years. Initially I came because SPBC was located near our house but I've come back again and again because of truthful preaching and the friendship and genuineness of the people who attend here. I'm married to John and we have 2 children in middle and elementary schools. Our family enjoys skiing, camping and fishing. One of our favorite things to do is ski to one of the public use cabins in our area and stock up the wood pile, cook good food, and play games together. We like picking berries together in the summer. I am honored to be able to teach children in Sunday School and Children's Church and I love this ministry because I get to help children increase their faith in a real, live God and in His ability to affect their circumstances. One precious responsibility of my job is helping new believers understand the difference between following rules and following Jesus.
