Church Relations

As a kid I always loved the process of taking an idea and transforming it into something tangible, regardless of whether I was building a go-cart or a fort. I love the challenge of building something that will stand. I knew very early on that I would be in some type of construction industry and for 30 plus years I have been blessed to have had a wide variety of experiences ranging from design, estimating, material testing, installation, field management to business development.

A Competitive Edge

My introduction to Aspen came as result of a competition for a church construction project. It became evident to me that while being in a traditional G.C. role I actually had very little that could compete with the comprehensive approach that Aspen presented. Time and time again I faced the Aspen Team. Time and time again I came up short. Although I had some good success, I felt in my heart that there must be a better way to lead a church through the process of project development. I was finally presented an opportunity to meet with the Aspen leadership team to learn more about their leadership styles and through those meetings we opened up additional dialogue that eventually lead to a job as a Project Developer for the Aspen Group.

The Most Rewarding Aspect of My Job

Meeting with the most committed people doing the most rewarding job while serving the local church.

Why Aspen?

Having watched and experienced the Aspen Team from a competitor’s perspective I was able to see a philosophy that actually worked with and for the Church. I have seen firsthand how a congregation can be moved in a Christ-like manner. After meeting with the leadership of Aspen my perceptions were true. The Aspen Team really does work to protect the church from heading down a costly path. I joined this team because it truly desires to serve the church. It also leads the church through a tested and proven method of project delivery that works.

Outside of the Office

I love being a dad and husband, serving my church, and most of all loving the role of being a new grandpa. On rare occasions I enjoy a round of golf as well.
