Lead Pastor & Elder
I have served as pastor to Missio Dei Fellowship from its inception. I have had the distinct joy of bringing the Word of God to the people of God on a weekly basis. I am married to Kim since 1984 and we had the privilege of raising four children, all who are grown and married. We are awash in grandchildren and delighting in every moment of it. I was trained for ministry at The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA where I received my M.Div. Currently I am the primary preaching pastor, and am also the one responsible for the bulk of developing the vision and goals of Missio Dei. For relaxation and pleasure I am both a reader and woodworker, creating sawdust to the glory of God.
Esme and I made Missio Dei our home in 2000, and we have served actively since. Currently, I serve as an elder at Missio Dei, and I am involved in various ministries. I am an electrician by trade. Esme and I are raising four young men: Josiah, Nathan, Joshua, and Samuel. My joy is in building relationships, encouraging others, and seeing them grow by the grace of God.
Pastor & Elder
My wife and I have been at Missio Dei since 2011 and served in various capacities since then. I am currently serving as a pastor with aspirations to plant a church if the Lord wills. Rebekah and I married in 2009 and we have been gifted with three wonderful children, Silas, Ava, and Ryleigh. I received my M.Div. from Moody Theological Seminary in 2019. I enjoy many creative outlets, but most of all, those that give me the ability to share my love of the Scriptures to others in the hopes that they too will come to a greater knowledge of the truth and love of Christ.
Meet the STAFF
Worship Arts Director
Laena serves as the Worship Arts Director for Missio Dei Fellowship in Kenosha. She and her husband, Mark, oversee and produce Missio Dei's media. They have been involved in Music Ministry for most of their lives, having both been raised in the Church and gifted with a love and talent for music. Mark and Laena were married in 2011, and have the sweet (and often entertaining) privilege as parents to their four children: Quinn, Rhys, Penelope, and baby Georgia. For the entirety of their early years of marriage and parenting, they have been counseled and cared for by the people of Missio Dei. "We love to serve our church, and participate in its unwavering passion and mission for God’s Word and God's people."

Since 1985, my husband Tom and I have been members of this church. The Lord has called us to fill many roles here throughout the years, but my personal favorite has been as the church secretary, a role I have filled since 2003. I love the people of Missio Dei, and I feel blessed to be a part of the ministry here.
Originally from Milwaukee, I received my degree in Accounting and my CPA license before moving to Kenosha. Shortly before marrying my husband David, we were both called to Christ and began attending Missio Dei a few years later. I currently enjoy serving our Lord and our church as Treasurer of MDF.
