About Me

This blog is dedicated to Grace Community Church (1106 Mill St. Yorkville, IL. 60560) where my not-so-smooth sanctification has been put on display for over 24 yrs as their pastor (1 Tim. 4:15-16), but that’s the beauty of God’s grace: “But by the grace of God I am what I am” (1 Cor. 15:10). Like a wonderfully constructed sound board for an instrument, God is showing off how gracious he is to me in Christ and my response is to enjoy (that’s the absorption part of grace) and then reflect it in the way I love God and my neighbor (that’s the vibration part of grace). Everything is to the Praise of the Glory of His Grace!

  1. Buddy,
    I am so glad this is up and running, may our Lord who sees our every kind word and deed bring your wonderful grasp of God and footprint of Christ to many others. He has given you a beautiful handle on His truth and made you a wonderful tool for telling and heralding it to some… and now may we pray to many.

  2. Great to meet you today Pastor! May God richly bless you and your family. I loved hearing how God is the center of everything in your life…even hunt’n deer 🙂 Blessings friend!
