Welcome to Heritage! My highest priority is providing you with the emotional and spiritual support you need to discover God in your life. I encourage people to live by the greatest commandment, “to love God and to love neighbor” (Matthew 22:34-40).
I want to encourage and enable you to develop spiritual practices to help you grow in your love for God and your love for neighbor. There is no one spiritual practice that fits all. What works for me may not work for you, so we experiment in various spiritual practices.
I've been the pastor at Heritage since 1994 and have also served churches in Kansas and Iowa.
I grew up on a small farm in Iowa. I am a twin, and both of my parents, as well as 4 uncles and aunts, were deaf. Having grown up in a home where I witnessed people being excluded because of their deafness. It is significant to me that God is inclusive and welcomes all.
My wife Ramona and I, have one daughter, Gina who graduated from the University of Nebraska Omaha with an education degree.
I would be happy to help you discover how Heritage can become a part of your spiritual journey.
