Family: I am the son of Eric & Jeanne and the older brother of Daniel.
Hobbies: Aside from work and church-related activities, I also enjoy reveling in God’s attributes and works through the best hymns and gospel songs. Currently, my favorite subjects are Christ’s building of His church and the promises of Heaven and the age to come. I thank God that I can worship Him and edify others through both singing and piano playing.
Education: I attended Grand Valley State University and received a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Current Vocation: I am employed full-time at Koops Inc. as a Mechanical Engineer. My role mainly consists of designing automated machines for manufacturing, using CAD software. From my short lifetime of developing my gifts and interests, I believe God has uniquely suited me for this type of work.
Ministry Goals & Aspirations: I aspire to fight the good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience. I want to serve my local church body to the best of my ability and availability until I finally join the assembly of glorified saints for the rest of eternity.
Prayer Requests: Please pray that I would be a vessel for honorable use, sanctified and useful to the Lord, and that I would not regard the passing pleasures of this world.
Favorite Verse: One section of scripture that has rung in my ears in recent years is 1 Peter 1:12-19, particularly verse 13 – “Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Why TES @ MBC: As a member of MBC (since 2013) I have been surprised and blessed to have TES come to me, rather than vice versa. I have found it to be a perfect opportunity to serve the Lord through my church family as both an engineer and a seminarian.
