Get To Know Us

Who We Are

Founded in 1963, College Heights is a church that is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people in Casper and around the world, and making disciples in His name. We believe in the inerrancy of the Bible, the sinfulness of man, the holiness of the one and only God, and the salvation that only comes through Jesus Christ. We believe that we are meant to walk together in faith, encouraging and helping each other to be the followers of Christ that we are called to be.

Our beliefs are in line with the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message, which can be found here.

If you have any other questions about who we are or what we believe, please contact us.

It's been my privilege to serve College Heights for over 15 years and I love being a part of this great church. We strive to love the Lord and each other and we strive to share the love of Christ in Casper and around the world. It is exciting to see people place their trust in Jesus and find life and joy in Him. It is exciting to share the Word of God and watch God rebuild broken lives and give wisdom and grace in time of need. It is exciting to see people step out to serve the Lord for the first time and to see God use them to bless others. It's just exciting to be a part of the Body of Christ here at College Heights and we'd love to get to know you and walk with you. Come join us and see what God's doing at College Heights.

I've been married to my beautiful wife, Beth, for over 30 years and we have five great kids, an awesome son-in-law and an awesome daughter-in-law and four wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy camping and I root for the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Cubs, whether they're having a good year or not!

I was invited to join the staff to serve as an associate pastor in July of 2016 and count it an incredible privilege. I am here to help with discipleship, education and counseling, so my love for our Lord and His Word are central to what I do and how I serve. Hopefully, that love will rub off on, or in turn be greatened, by all those I get to serve.  

My bride Lynne and I married in 1986 and served in Tucson, AZ; Custer City, OK; and Cheyenne, WY before coming to Casper. We raised two wonderful boys to adulthood who live in Cheyenne and Colorado Springs. All four of us survived.

The most apparent gifts of the Spirit in my life at this time seem to be mercy, teaching, and exhortation. I tend toward the sanguine side of life and am thoroughly in love with my first wife. She is still graciously married to me. We both root for the Rockies and for Tim Tebow. My blood runs OK State Univ orange.

Hey! I’m the youth pastor here at College Heights. Throughout the years I have developed a love for mentoring and teaching in all that I do and now have the privilege to do so with the youth. It is my mission to walk with and point kids to Jesus and encourage them in living out their relationship with Him. My prayer is not only that God would use the youth but that they would see Him and hear His

Peanut butter! So, I met my awesome wife in 2008 while raising money for a peanut grinder for the Chande Orphanage in Zambia, Africa. She donated! We got married in December of 2009 and we now have three children and help with foster care. I was born and raised right here in Casper and grew up hunting, fishing, and playing sports. I received Jesus in September of 2007 and He continues to be faithful. I love soccer (go Barcelona!), music, rally racing and peanut butter. If you have any questions or if I can help in any way please contact me.

Since May of 2011 I’ve been on part time staff here at College Heights.

My awesome wife Starla and I were missionaries in Latin America for many years when God brought us to Casper. College Heights Baptist Church has meant a lot to us as we need a solid church family where the Bible is preached. We are still active in Missions serving our Mexican National Missionary Fellowship and getting involved in our church missions program here at College Heights. We are passionate for souls and enjoy sharing the Gospel of Jesus around the world.

The Lord has blessed us with seven great kids. Our older four are nearly all married and our youngest three are from China and living here with us. Our daughter Lancy and her husband Mario are missionaries in Portugal.

International soccer is what I enjoy watching. Camping, fishing and swimming are things we like to do. As a family we like to serve others and help out with the foster program here in Casper.

I am also a licensed Realtor here in Wyoming.

I have been performing the behind the scenes duties at the church for 27 years, serving in different areas such as New Hope Woman to Woman Ministries, as well as Sunday School and other children’s ministries. I have four wonderful children who are living in Wyoming, Montana and Washington State. The Lord has blessed me with fourteen beautiful grandbabies. He has provided many opportunities for me to serve in His kingdom both locally and abroad. My prayer is for College Heights to be a light in the community; spreading the hope and salvation only Jesus Christ can provide.
