Gene served as a Senior Pastor during the first 14 years after graduating college. During that time, he realized a traditional denominational approach to today’s culture wasn’t reaching people and most denominations weren’t changing.
So Gene stepped down from ministry and started a business career which the Lord has blessed over the last 15 years. The last 15 years have taught Gene what it means to work with budgets, forecasts, manage teams spread across the nation, balance work demands with family needs and practice his faith in the midst of the marketplace.
Now Gene will combine both careers to help lead Lake Shores Church and deliver the Sunday message. Gene’s perspective will take into account that we all have many demands on our lives including family, work and our health. Thus Gene’s sermons will focus on how to live our faith during all these activities.
Gene has been married to Kaye for 30 years and has one daughter, Amber; a son in law named Brandon and a son, Jordan. Gene loves wake boarding, golf, kayaking and reading.
