Mari and I have been married for 10 years and have a blended family of 2 sons, 3 daughters, 9 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I have worked in the automotive aftermarket since 1982 currently working for MPA as a Catalog Manager and Mari has worked for Farm Bureau Insurance for, let’s just say she knows insurance very well. We have been attending Blackhawk Ministries since we returned to Fort Wayne in 2018. I serve Blackhawk as a co-leader of the Myers-Hardway Life group since 2018 and as a Life group Shepherd since 2020. We fell in love with this church from day one, Christmas Eve 2017, where the Bible has the first word and the last word, where the leaders lead with transparency and we are taught to live our lives with open hands and loving heart. We love serving those in the 46815 zip code, surrounding area, our country and the 15 regions around the world as we Light the 15.
