Elder

Email

Rod was born in Los Angeles but did most of his growing up in the Minneapolis area. In the mid 1970s, he responded to the call of Christ while on a date by praying for forgiveness of his sins and submitting to the Lord. He later married the woman he was dating, Martha, and they currently have 7 children and 5 grandchildren.  

Since coming to Bethlehem in 1989, they have been involved in leading a small group, teaching Sunday School classes, teaching at Wednesday Connection (Martha), and serving on the Elder Council (Rod). Rod works as a mechanical designer and lives in St. Louis Park. His passion is to promote a vibrant community of mature followers of Jesus at Bethlehem.
