Dennis grew up in the western suburbs of Minneapolis.
Dennis' work experience has moved his family around the Midwest, allowing him to experience eight distinct church cultures. Dennis has had the pleasure of being a lay leader in many of these churches, and in various capacities including elder, teacher, and governing board member. He is both excited and humbled to have the opportunity to be a part of a new church plant, as he believes that investing in this new community of faith will help proclaim to the world that Jesus is Lord.
Dennis has a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering from Iowa State University, and an advanced business degree from Wichita State University. He also has taken a number of ministry courses from Moody Bible Institute and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
