I Corinthians 12:12

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body.  So it is with Christ.”

Personal Biography

My wife Jordan and I were married in the summer of 2012 and are currently living in Jenison. We have been blessed with two amazing children, Josiah and Maggie who keep us very busy.  We enjoy being active with yard work and being involved in many sports.

Philosophical Biography

It is a privilege to be able to work at Hudsonville Christian. I believe God has called us to work together as the body of Christ, giving us each unique gifts to glorify him.  In all areas of education we will explore these gifts in each student, and help to develop these gifts.  It is vital to have an understanding that each student is diverse in the way they learn and develop.  I believe this understanding will build a Christian community in our school that supports students and allows them to develop not only their academics, but spiritually as well.  I look forward to partnering with students, parents and teachers to develop future generations of Christ’s followers.
