What do you love about Zeeland Christian?
I appreciate the relationships that are built between staff members and students. It is obvious that people truly care about each other.
Why are you passionate about Christian Education?
It is so refreshing to be able to go to work each day and not have to hide my faith. Being able to share my faith with students throughout the day is such a blessing to me.
What do you want others to know about you?
My wife, Ann, and I enjoy being able to visit our adult children and their spouses. We enjoy being able to go on summer vacations with family members. We enjoy bike riding and have just begun to enjoy kayaking on the lakes and rivers in Michigan.
One life lesson your students have taught you:
One life lesson that my students have reinforced in my life is the importance of caring for each other and listening carefully to others. Being as Christ-like as possible each day.
