Describe your perfect day
My perfect day would be spent at my parent's cabin in Luck, WI. I would go golfing in the morning, wake boarding/water skiing in the afternoon and fishing in the evening. I'd have burgers for lunch, steak for dinner and cheesecake for dessert. I'd be with my wife, children and parents... of course the parents would be in charge of the kids :-).

I love the people that I work with and serve in the congregation and the unique partnership the WayCross Church has with Compass Ministries.
