Where do you see God moving in Third?

I see Him moving in the hearts of many who serve others through the ministries that the church supports, including CrossOver Healthcare Ministry, STEP, CHAT, etc.

What are your spiritual gifts?

Service and teaching have been identified in the surveys. God has allowed me to participate in short-term missions, student ministries, and other activities in which they play a role.

Tell us about your hobbies and family

I am married to the most wonderful lady in the world, Kathy, and we have three terrific children, now adults - Geoff, Katie, and Jay. God just blessed our family with a new arrival, a baby boy born to Katie and her husband, Yoony - their first child and our first grandchild.  Hobbies include beach and water sports, golf, fishing, travel, adventure races and working out with Seal-Team-PT.

What famous person are you most likely to be mistaken for?

I am unlikely to be mistaken for anyone famous.  I have been told that I look like Mitch Kupchak and Dolph Lundgren's character in The Expendables (after he discovered carbohydrates)

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

This is is an unfair question.  Kathy is such a great cook I could not possibly select one food. I may be able to narrow the selection to three or four favorite meals.
