In a Nutshell

Problem solver. Photographer. Father-of-two. Former business owner. Enjoyer of geography, history, and the great outdoors.

The Full Story

I grew up in a Lutheran church in rural Bartholomew county. My high school sweetheart grew up at Berean Bible Church (that would eventually become The Ridge). After we were married, I would attend both my Lutheran church and Berean each Sunday…yes, it was a very busy morning. At Berean, I really started to connect with the teachings and decided to solely attend Berean and make it my church home.

After The Ridge’s move into our new facility on Bonnell Road, the need for extra help and staffing arose. Shortly after, I started part-time assisting with the accounting/financial needs. While working at The Ridge, I got to see how the staff worked first-hand, I was impressed with everyone’s strong work ethic and how the staff was a cohesive team. In 2016, I wanted to shift my priorities and be able to spend more time with my family. Around that time, an opportunity opened that allowed me to work full time at The Ridge. My role still includes the accounting/finance arena, but has now expanded to include helping with the daily operations of the facility and grounds.

What I Do

During a normal working day, you may find me doing anything from overseeing the campus landscaping to processing invoices. My overall role includes assisting with the accounting/financial needs of the church, as well as supporting the daily operations of the facility and grounds. I love the variety of different tasks I work on each week and the challenges they present.

Life Before The Ridge

Before The Ridge, I was manager and co-owner of Wischmeier Nursery for 30 years.
