|Director of Student Retreats
|More about me:
The two main priorities in my life are family and connecting young adults
to God. I'm married to a wonderful woman, Katherine, and we are new parents
to Parker Foord who was born March 20, 2000. My daughter, Madeline, turned
three December 14, 2000. Both Madeline and Parker are unbelievable joys
and have taught me much about the love God has for each of us.
Directing students retreats at Creighton University is a very fulfilling
career. I get to companion students along their journey as they are understanding
and connecting with their peers and God in meaningful ways. Their journey
is sacred and I really value the opportunity to be part of it. I also teach
communication courses, and get energized by witnessing how students become
more confident and effective communicators. I have also written two books,
Interacting With God and Becoming Like Christ, that are small group resources
for young adults. Some of my hobbies are gardening, cooking, playing racketball,
and designing web pages.

I believe God uses these weaknesses to help others find benefits from my
