I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, heard the gospel for the first time when I was 17 years old, and attended a worship service for the first time that same year. After graduating from high school I was converted by the grace of God and things have never been the same. I am a graduate of Moody Bible Inst. in Chicago (where I met my wife!) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, and the Lead Pastor of Redeemer Fellowship in St. Charles, IL.
