I was born on May 2, 1965, in Anchorage, Alaska, but basically grew up in Watertown, WI. At the age of 13, on June 4, 1978, I received the Lord as my Savior at Calvary Baptist Church
in Watertown. Because I was saved, I followed the Lord in baptism by immersion on June 25 and then dedicated my life to the Lord at Camp Joy during a winter teen retreat on December 26, 1978. I graduated from Calvary Baptist Christian School in 1979, Maranatha Baptist Academy in 1983, and Maranatha Baptist Bible College
in 1987. I am currently in my 27th year teaching and coaching at Utica Christian School in Utica, WI. On June 19, 2004, I married Tracy Oshel.
My life verses: I Corinthians 15:57-58
"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
