My wife, Sheri, and I  have two daughters, Pam and Peg, who both attended Blackhawk Christian School. We have a son-in-law, Brandon, married to Pam, and their 3 daughters, Analise, Maisie, and Sadie. They live in Kearney, Nebraska while Peg resides in Ft. Worth, Texas. I am a retired music educator having taught at Jefferson Middle School for 40 years. I also coached track and volleyball at the school, plus 22 years of club volleyball, and 15 years as a volleyball official. We began attending Blackhawk in 1976 where I served in the music ministry, being a part of the choir, Blackhawk Singers, and the Mensingers Quartet. In 1992, we felt called to be a part of a new church plant in Ft. Wayne. We were involved in that ministry until 2016 when we felt the Lord’s leading us to return to Blackhawk. Sheri and I are currently serving as co-leaders of the Godfrey/Huls Life group. We are also staff volunteers for Turning Point Ministries and Dr. Jeremiah. In addition, I direct our Brass, Woodwind, and String band and serve as a First Impressions greeter for the second service. I am looking forward to serving our church as we seek to Light the One Five.
