Dayton Center Church

Not just a church, A family

Let's just face it, a pastor isn't much without his family.  So I will give you the 101 on my family first.  My wife Keelie and I have been married for 5 years now.  She was born and lived in this area until her family moved to Wisconsin due to her father going to Northland Baptist Bible College.  She lived around Northland for 18 years, and that is when we met.  She loves photography, in fact, she has her own business called Keelie Marie Photography.  Besides being a photographer, she is an awesome mother to our daughter Ryley, and she is a great help in the ministry.  

Our daughter Ryley is 2 years old and full of life.  She loves people and loves to explore.  Ryley is very photogenic with all of her funny expressions.  Keelie and I pray often that Ryley will one day give her life to God and serve Him with her whole being.  

And finally me, I grew up in central Illinois, the land of controversial politicians.  At the age of 15, I accepted the fact that I needed Christ and gave my life to Him.  From there, I felt God had called me to preach.  I started my bachelors at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, but the college closed down my first semester.  I then transferred to Northland Baptist Bible College where I finished my bachelors in 2012.  After graduation, we headed to Flint to be a part time associate pastor for a year and a half.  In December of 2013, we were called to take the pastorate here at Dayton Center.  We are excited for the ministry God has given us here in Silverwood, and can't wait to see what God will do with us here.
