My Deep Hope:
My deep hope is that my students abide & thrive in the fullness of an engaged, biblically-directed life.
 
YEARS AT CWC:
1992-present (30th year)
 
EDUCATION: 
BA History/Secondary Education from Dordt University, 1992; Completing M.Ed. in Educational Leadership at Marian College (WI)
 
EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE: 
I came to CWC upon graduation from Dordt in 1992, and since that time I've been involved in almost every aspect of our school. For four years (1992-96) I taught middle school social studies and English and coordinated the technology program. In the fall of 1996 I moved over to the high school to teach social studies and Bible and serve as athletic director. I began a seven-year stint as high school principal in the fall of 1997, while continuing to teach three classes and serve as AD. In 2018, I was selected as the District VI Wisconsin Athletic Director of the Year.
 
In the fall of 2004 I began a new position as the Director of Advancement, while continuing in the classroom and as athletic director. I coached girls' basketball for four years and coached the boys' soccer program for 28 years, holding the head coach position from 1995-2019. From 2010-2013 I also served as head track coach for boys and girls, and wrapped that around several years as an assistant.
 
FAMILY: 
My wife Kristi is also in her 30th year teaching at CWC. After 15 years of teaching third grade, she began to teach kindergarten in the fall of 2007. We both grew up in Minnesota, and were married in 1990. We have three children, Trevor ('13 - Principal at Lafayette (IN) Christian School - married to Lauren), Cody ('15 - Sales Manager in Boise, ID - married to Jeana), and Mikayla ('19 - studying Special Education/Elementary Education at Dordt University).  We're also excited to be grandparents to Harlow and a baby to be born in November!!  We attend the First Christian Reformed Church of Waupun, where we are actively involved in worship leading with our Praise Team, lead a couple's Bible Study, and I have served as Council Clerk. I also do some lay-preaching in area churches and am licensed by Classis Wisconsin. I have been a long-time WIAA soccer referee, and do freelance sportscasting for local radio and the NFHS/WIAA.tv Network.
 
WHY I LOVE WORKING AT CWC: 
Education is about the kids and seeing them grow. Watching the Holy Spirit shape and mold the lives of kids as they mature through their high school years and seeing the fruit of the Spirit become more evident both while they are in school and after they graduate brings great rewards. In my work as Director of Advancement, it is exciting to share the vision and beauty of Christ-centered education with new families as well as with our own constituency. God is great!!!
 
FAVORITE BIBLE PASSAGE: 
Isaiah 55:8-13 - God's Word always accomplishes His purpose!!
