I welcome the opportunity to answer questions regarding Evangelism/Outreach to English-speaking non-Christians in the United States. My answers in this area would be relevant for any Christian denomination. I also have specialized knowledge in the areas of rural ministry, rural evangelism, race track chaplaincy and auto racing outreach/ministry. I do not have adequate experience to answer questions regarding world missions, cross-cultural outreach, or outreach by any religion other than Christianity.
I have served as a Lutheran (Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod) pastor for six years at St. John's Lutheran Church in Burt, IA. For six years, I served as chairman of the Personal Missions Subcommittee, I currently serve as chairman of the Commission on Ministerial Growth & Support of the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod's Iowa District West and Track Chaplain at Algona Raceway.
