First Job:
Grocery bagger – first paying job…did free labor (chores) for my dad WAY before that

If I had the day off with no responsibilities, I would:
I would read comic books/throw baseball/football with my son, make crafts with my daughter, go stand-up paddle boarding/kayaking with my wife, do some wood carving, and play the chanter (precursor to the bagpipes). This would need to be longer than a 24 hr. day of course…

Read the book or watch the movie?

The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings (for both watching and reading)

In a word to describe your overall temperament:
Laid-back

Were you raised in the church?
Yes—Seventh Day Adventist actually

Some people who have inspired my spiritual life over the years (authors/preachers/mentors):
My dad, C.S. Lewis, Oswald Chambers, Gordon Bietz-pastor growing up, and a lot of people through the years.

A pivotal point in my Christian faith:
When God plucked me from the depths of my stupidity (I know, “which time”? you ask…)

Something I wish someone had told me sooner about walking with the Lord:
The first thing that popped into my head was the 7 truths from Experiencing God study/book:
– God is at work around you
– God pursues a love relationship with you
– God invites you to join Him
– God speaks to you
– Your crisis of belief
– You must adjust your life
– You can experience God

I want to be a mentor because:
I want more interaction with other Christian men, and I really want to give back
