How I came to Christhunerdosse

I came to Christ as a teen. I had been raised in a Christian home and gone to church all of my life. As a typical teen, rebellion was the main word of my life. After a particularly long period of extreme rebellion my conscience wouldn’t let me sleep one night and I knelt beside my bed in tears and asked Christ to forgive me and surrendered to His relentless pursuit of a chronic rebel.

Charles Coakley – Youth Pastor

How I came to Christ:

Beginning at about age five I attended Sunday School at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Kansas City North and under the tutelage of wonderful teachers I grew to love the Lord. I don’t know that there was ever an exact date that I accepted Christ, but I began knowing I was a Christian around the age of eight.

My Passion

I really enjoy and receive great satisfaction from working with young people. For those who don’t know Christ, I hope I can lead them to Him, and for those who already have accepted Christ as their savior I hope to enrich their lives with quality teaching.

My favorite book(s) of the Bible:

Matthew and Luke – I enjoy studying the birth of Jesus from two different viewpoints.

My Hobbies:


My Favorite Movie or TV Show:

Movie – Grapes of Wrath (1940)

TV –  Gunsmoke (1955-1975)

What makes me laugh:

The humorous antics of Middle School children.  Even though I’ve retired after teaching 28 years I’m still in Middle School substituting because I respect the humor and unabashed love of life that only middle school age kids exhibit.

How I came to Christ

I spent my adolescence and young adulthood as an atheist. In high school, I had a friend that patiently shared the gospel with me, treated me kindly despite my hostility to God, and continued to pray for me. Midway through college, God convinced me that I was a sinner and needed to be forgiven beyond just forgiving myself. Remembering what I had heard years before, I knew that Jesus was offering that forgiveness. I decided that if he were willing to forgive me and accept me, wretch that I was, I would give my life to him and serve him. That day, my fiancee, Abigail, and I prayed together on the shoulder of an Illinois highway at sunset to receive Christ as our Lord and Savior.

My Passion

My passion is seeing kids come to faith in Christ and develop a relationship with him that will carry them through the difficulties and trials of life.
