My family has been a part of the Aspen Grove network for over 10 years, beginning at Woodridge and a part of The Highlands Church in Delano since its inception.  Originally from the east coast, Rich moved to the Twin Cities nearly 26 years ago.  This experience was instrumental to his life as he meet his wife Jenny and gave his life to Christ.  Delano has been home for 20 years for them and their 2 children - Tyler age 21 and Lauren age 15.  I am employed as a Business Unit President with Taylor Corporation. It has been a blessing to see God work through Crow River Church and the difference it is making in the Delano/Rockford area.  I have a heart for men's ministry and connecting men to serve in the community.  I  look forward to serving the Aspen Grove Network.

My wife Angie and I have been attending Woodridge for nearly a decade and we are blessed with two children, Meghan and Andrew.  After graduating from Orono High School, I attended the Air Force Academy and then served on active duty for five years in FL and AZ.  During that time the Lord led us to some incredibly supportive faith communities.  I continue to serve in the Air Force Reserves and also volunteer as a Trustee on the Converge Worldwide pension fund.  In my civilian employment, I work for a boutique investment management firm in Minneapolis.  I appreciate the opportunity to serve the Aspen Grove Network.
