After completing his time in the United States Army, he graduated from the University of St. Mary with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Sciences. He owned his own computer business in Battle Lake, MN, for nearly ten years before selling the business to attend seminary. He left the Evangelical Lutheran Churches of America to join the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ.
