John and his wife Jackie joined St. Andrew in the late 1980’s for its family friendly atmosphere and the “small church” feel. Both (now adult) children grew up in the church and daughter Jill was married at St. Andrew. John is a retired sales executive who stays busy as a volunteer at PROP and IOCP food shelves, as a Planning Commissioner for the City of Eden Prairie and as a (very) part-time consultant. Upon retirement, John increased his participation in St. Andrew activities to include joining a regular ushering crew, a PROP project with Pastor Peter, small group activities (Faith Essentials, Pub Crawl), Church Anew volunteer, work with the communication team as a photographer, and as a member of the Endowment Committee. A seat on the church council would allow him to contribute to St. Andrew’s future vitality while keeping it’s “small church” feel.
