As our Shepherding Pastor, Rod provides broad leadership to the church’s work of member care and counseling—both in the provision of pastoral care and in the equipping of lay people to care for others in the congregation. Rod and his wife Jan were part of CCC while attending Grace College in the early 80’s, where Rod graduated with a BA in Biblical Studies. He returned to the staff at CCC in July 2004 and was ordained as a CCC Pastor in November 2005. Before coming on staff at CCC, Pastor Rod served in several ministries including Camp Forest Springs, a year round non-denominational Christian camp in north central Wisconsin, and CROSSTraining, a college discipleship ministry at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In his free time, Rod enjoys being outdoors, running, and riding his motorcycle.
