What do you love about Zeeland Christian?
I love coming alongside parents and teachers as they help children to know and love God, grow academically, and understand God's perfect plan for their lives.
Why are you passionate about Christian Education?
As Christian Educators, we keep in mind not only who the child is today, but who she or he is becoming in Christ. Teachers are especially gifted in seeing the God-given potential in students, and as they work with our children, they bring out this potential through providing encouragement and challenge.
What do you want others to know about you?
My wife April and I are high school sweethearts and have been married since 1994. We have three children, Lily (18), Grace (17), and Joey (12).
