About Our Commander:
As an initial introduction, I am always and as the highest priority of my life most excited that Jesus Christ provided mercy, grace and salvation for me, my family and all mankind! I strive daily, in my unworthy and imperfect condition, with His help to live my life the best I can for Him! What a joy to serve Him and the many blessings He provides me! The first blessing and priority of my life is Donna, my wonderful wife and best friend (married almost 31 years)! She is the best thing, next to Jesus Christ, that I have been privileged to be blessed with and so loved by here in my life! Secondly, our wonderful children Aaron, his wife Tessa and our granddaughter Lilli, our oldest daughter Alison and her husband Robert and our youngest daughter Anna. What a miracle to have such children as I have! The very best I could ever have imagined! Thirdly, I thank God for such a Christian foundation of being raised by the greatest devoted, well-grounded and loving Christian parents and grandmother in Falcon and growing up in the IPHC Church, coupled with so many mentors along life’s way, has made me what I am today. Such a great foundation! I feel divine providence has lead me to this great ministry of Royal Rangers starting in 1986 and now, as I serve you as the Cornerstone Conference, Royal Rangers, Conference Commander, I will continue to strive to serve the boys and leaders of this great conference to see God’s will and kingdom growth be done for His glory!
