My wife Tasha and I have been married 35 years. Together we have 8 children and 10 grandchildren. We are very thankful to God for our family and our freedom in America. 

I made the decision at a young age to follow Christ. I know the Lord desires all people to experience His grace and redemption. It is especially important to bring the good news of Jesus to those who are in prison.

I worked at the Otter Tail County Detention for over 31 years. I started as a Correctional Officer, a Dispatcher, a Corrections Sargent and then then spent 23 years as the Jail Program Coordinator.  I retired in 2020.

It is very important to have a chaplain in the jail facility. Most inmates have little or no understanding of who Jesus is and that there is a better life. A chaplain can make that introduction. A chaplain can make that introduction. Lives have been changed through Jail, Inc. We are grateful to the community that helps to place a chaplain at the jail.

I have retired from pastoral ministry, but I like to support ministries in ways that I can like JAIL, Inc. Serving on the board at JAIL, Inc. has been another opportunity to serve with the talents that God has given me.

The purpose of JAIL, Inc is very personal to me. I worked with Otter Tail County Juvenile Hold and assisting with transports for 20 years. I have life experience with families and friends who have ended up in jail or prison who live with substance use disorder and mental health disorders that have not had the supports in place to address these needs and continue the destructive cycle. Through JAIL. Inc many inmates our family find hope.

I am the case manager for the Salvation Army helping people in need with rent, utilities, lodging, food, gas, transportation, personal needs items, etc. I work with people who have been incarcerated quite often, especially after they are released.

My wife Heidi and I live in rural Underwood. We have two adult children each of whom work in the Fargo/Moorhead area. We are involved in a variety of civic, church and charitable organizations and enjoy and appreciate the ministry of each. More recently, I am honored to serve as District 3 Otter Tail County Commissioner, a new type of public service from my almost 30 years in the Otter Tail County Attorney’s Office.

JAIL Inc. is meaningful in that it serves to enhance the spiritual life of inmates in the Otter Tail County Detention Facility, through a relation-based ministry of one-to-one contact, education, Bible study and worship. Through this ministry lives are changed.

As a Lutheran pastor, I reside in Vining and serve three small rural congregations between Kensington and Battle Lake.  I am impressed with the necessity of sound spiritual development, particularly with those incarcerated due to addiction and alcoholism.  Pete, our chaplain, brings this vantage to life "inside" with genuine service to Jesus.
