I love honing a message expressed through words and visuals! I serve with Cru as part of a creative team near Indianapolis, and I help develop new ministry tools using my skills in research, video editing, web design, writing, and copy editing. Twice a year I serve as a small group coach for a Bible Study Methods class with Cru’s Institute of Biblical Studies. I also periodically coach for communication training events that help Cru staff members and students speak in front of groups with confidence and lead musical worship expressively.

Personal Ministry Highlights

  • Over 40 years of ministry with Cru in the US and Canada as a musician, then a trainer, and now an innovation specialist
  • Short-term mission trips to nine countries in Asia, Europe and South America
  • Students, Cru staff members, and lay leaders from 25 countries trained to communicate God’s message through music and public speaking



With all my heart, I believe that this is God’s heart:

to see “a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne” in worship! (Revelation 7:9, NIV) God wants to redeem His creation, and He wants us to help.

Together we can help fulfill God’s vision to redeem the world.
