Dear Hope Church,

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me and my family. Many of you know my wife Martha through her time in MOPS and various other ministries. We have four wonderful and unique children, Josephine, Harper, Julien, and Ethan.



Martha and I relocated our family to Dubuque from Chicago in 2011 and quickly found Dubuque, and in particular the Hope Church Family, to be a warm and welcoming community for our family. We have enjoyed ‘rolling up our sleeves’ and jumping in to serve the church family in different ways.
