    I still can’t look at the words “Senior Pastor” next to my name without laughing. This could only be God’s doing! To my surprise and delight, God brought me to Chapel Hill Church to be their pastor and I couldn’t be happier with what He’s done. From Vancouver, Canada (where I grew up) to Haiti (where I served as an agricultural missionary and met my wife) to Minnesota (college), to Senegal, West Africa (where we served for five years), and now back to Minnesota. What a journey! And God used all that to prepare me to serve this church.


    I love God, my perfect Father. I love my wife Kim. I love my boys Liam, Jude and Asher. I love this church and what God is doing here. It’s a community where we’re growing in our relationships with Him. He’s teaching us how to truly love each other and be His family. And He’s showing us what He has created us to do. We actually get to be a part of God’s mission in this world, from our neighborhoods to places around the world!


    Come and see what God is doing here. We’ll do everything we can to show you who God is, to demonstrate His love for you, and to discover with you the mission He’s created us for.

    Wife – Pam

    I grew up in a small town in Maine. Yes, I like lobster and Moxie. In high school, I was privileged to have a pastor who poured time into me and encouraged me to pursue youth ministry – a job I didn’t know existed since churches where I lived were so small they only had one pastor. God brought me to Minnesota to study at UNW where I met my wife, Pam. We have two amazing kids. I have had the privilege to serve as a Youth Pastor, Children’s Pastor, Associate Church Planter, and Associate Pastor in several different churches, both rural and urban. I am passionate about encouraging students, their parents, and youth leaders to pursue God and authenticity in their relationships, and I love developing leaders!

    Early life for me was all about family. In my home three generations lived under one roof and worked together toward a common goal. But soon the time came for me to leave our small dairy farm in rural Wisconsin to experience life in the big city and so I arrived in St. Paul to begin the journey of higher education at Bethel College (now university). In four short years I obtained a degree and a husband and headed out on international short term missions. After returning from that whirlwind first year of marriage my husband Ron and I settled into jobs and figuring out what God had for us. My husband became an elementary school teacher and I eventually became a homeschooling mom to our three wonderful kids. 


    Family has always been very important to me and through the years of raising my own children God has given me a passion to equip the families of Chapel Hill as they learn and grow together. I love learning and I love kids. Nothing is better than sitting in a room full of kids and teaching them in ways that honors each of them as individuals. 


    Here at Chapel Hill your kids will learn how they fit into God’s big story and parents will be equipped and encouraged to disciple their children along the way.

    Family: 

    Wife – Emilee

    Baby on the way! (Due December 28th)



    I grew up in small-town Iowa in a big homeschooled family where we all learned to sing, play piano and an additional instrument or two. I fell in love with the church at a young age and music ministry was just a part of my life. I met my lovely wife, Emilee, at Village Creek Bible Camp in Lansing Iowa where we were both serving in our areas of passion--I was leading worship and serving as a counselor, and Emilee was working as a wrangler in the horse area. We have lived in Chaska the last three years while I have been teaching middle school and high school choir and serving at Parkside Church. 


    Emilee and I love to play disc golf together as well as watch professional disc golf tournaments on YouTube! We also love to play volleyball or other sports and games with friends. I enjoy writing and producing music and collecting audio gear to build up my home studio as well as sharing an occasional video on YouTube.


    I am thrilled that God has aligned our path with Chapel Hill Church where I know He is doing great things and will continue to do great things! I’m so excited for what He is doing in our lives and am thankful that we serve such an amazing, loving God!

    My passion for children and my passion for Christ make my job fun and rewarding. I couldn't imagine working anywhere else than here at CHC. I'm a trained professional in the are of kissing injuries, making dinner and helping with homework at the same time, turning frowns to smiles and of course all projects requiring glue. In other words I am know as mom, wife and child of God. 


    I enjoy dates with my husband Clay, and laughing uncontrollably with our kids, Haley, Thane, Noah, Ava and Elle. In the rare moments I have to myself I love to read, shop and knock things off my 'bucket list'.

    Chapel Hill has been my church home since 1997!  Wow - That is a long time!  I love that this is a church that teaches and preaches living life according to the truths of the Bible. 

    I have a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and two awesome Sons-in-law.  Mark and I are now embracing and enjoying the empty nest as our daughters have married and moved on; one living in Idaho and one in France with our two grandchildren.  We are now enjoy travelling, eating out, gardening and serving the Lord wherever He leads us.

    I love our church family. We have grown so much here! My wife Joy and I began working student ministries at Chapel Hill in 1998 and we have continued to plug ourselves in ever since. The passion of our family is centered around worshiping God, taking the Bible and bible study seriously, and looking for ways that we can impact those immediately around us. Chapel Hill has been critical to the development of those passions and we hope you will experience the same growth. We have two elementary aged girls, Grace and Sydney, and we live in South Minneapolis.

    We are volunteer worship leaders and have been members of the Chapel Hill Church family since 2019! Ever since we were high school sweethearts at the age of 16, we have been involved in music and have used our skills to worship our Savior. Wherever God has led us in our lives in the last 15 years, our love for intentional music has given us joy to draw other's attention to the only Person who deserves our praise! We have two young children, Ethan and Evy, who are strong and hilarious and keep us on our toes. We live in Apple Valley and enjoy all things active: biking, hiking, kayaking, tennis, snowboarding. Jesus is our everything and may we, in all things, bring glory to Him!
