I love being the senior pastor of CrossPoint Church. Ministry is not a job for me. Leading people into a growing relationship with Christ is something I delight in along with leading the church into God's purposes. I am continually amazed as more and more people embrace the good news of a life of faith in Jesus Christ! God is working in the people of CrossPoint in mighty ways!
My wife Marcy and I have five grown children, one son-in-law, and one grandchild, Chloe! We enjoy games like Kubb and camping on the north shore of Lake Superior; traveling to explore God's amazing creation, and mission trips to serve people in other countries. I especially enjoy pheasant hunting behind my Brittany Spaniel.
I have served as Senior Pastor of CrossPoint Church since 2007. Before CrossPoint, I also served churches in Fosston and Grand Rapids, Minnesota; served as an Intern at Bethlehem Baptist Church, and also served as a Converge Worldwide missionary at Faith Academy in the Philippines. I graduated from Bethel Seminary in 1987 with a Master of Divinity and also in 2009 with a Doctor of Ministry degree in Entrepreneurial Leadership.

I oversee our Growth Groups, adult ministry teams, assimilation, outreach events, as well as occasionally preaching and whatever else needs to be done. As Pastor Rick likes to say, I am the most versatile thing at church right after duct tape. I desire to develop mature followers of Jesus who will, in turn, invest their lives in making disciples, creating an exponentially growing movement. I have a B.A. in Youth Ministry from Moody Bible Institute and an MDiv from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I am married to Stephanie and we have three kids, Carsten, Emery, and Allie. I love competitive sports, winning, fishing, summers, and the sound of my kids laughing.

As the Pastor of Worship and Care at CrossPoint Church, I am responsible for overseeing our Church Gatherings, leading worship, and helping to see each person is cared for in our church family. I graduated from the University of Northwestern in 2001 with a B.A. in Music Composition and Bible. A few months after graduation, I was given the privilege to serve this community of believers where my wife Ginny and I have watched our three kids Josiah, Conner, and Elizabeth, grow into teenagers.
I live to see everyone in our area know and love Jesus and each other through genuine community. I do enjoy coffee (but not as much as Cory), board games, superhero movies, and my fabulous wife, although not in that order!

After 15 years in the midwest, first Chicago, now in Hutchinson, I think I can say that I am finally acclimated. I grew up in the mountains in Oregon, spent seven years at the Grand Canyon, where Jesus drew me to Himself. I went from death to life and couldn't wait to tell everyone about him. A few years later, I was at Trinity International University, receiving my B.A. in Christian Ministries and Biblical Studies.
I moved to Hutchinson to marry Greg in 2012, the best nurse and husband a girl can have. I was excited to be a part of this church community as I sensed God at work illuminating the gospel to those that knew him religiously, but not personally. I love my job communicating to the CrossPoint Church family and supporting the ministry programs. It is my hope and prayer that we continue to proclaim the gospel faithfully and clearly, out of overflowing hearts, gratified by His mercy and grace.

I have been a Minnesotan for 21 years and have been ministering to kids at CrossPoint for most of those years. I am married to Bryan, and we have two adult sons and one daughter-in-law. I oversee all of CrossPoint's ministry for kids, infant - 5th grade.
I have a B.S. from the University of Missouri-Rolla in Applied Mathematics , and an M.A. in Mathematics from Southwest Missouri State University. Which comes in handy when you're counting kids : ) .
I love to see the excitement and joy of kids and adults as they grow in their relationship with Jesus. In my free time, I like to travel with my family, and that usually involves biking and hiking.

I am married to Kim, and we have three fascinating kids, Makayla, Nathan, and Adalyn. I have an M.A. in Biblical studies from Northland International University, which I put to use as the CPYouth Ministry Director. I am responsible for leading the ministries for Middle School and High School students at CrossPoint.
What fuels my tank other than my wife's love, Caribou coffee, reeling in a nice bass is seeing students understand the truth of the Gospel and growing in their relationship with Jesus.
