Congregational Care Pastor
When Al was 16 his family moved to Northern Idaho from Minnesota. At the age of 20, he met his wife, Terry, and the two married in 1973. They have two children, Chelsea and Aaromi.
Al went to work for a local lumber company operating heavy equipment and was there for 34 years. In 2018 Al took a job as a civilian contractor in Iraq which was very much a life-changing experience. After a long year, he returned home with a heart for and call to ministry. It wasn't long before the Elders of Hayden Lake Friends Church sensed that call in Al and asked him to come on staff as a men's ministry and community groups Pastor. After 40 years of Attending Anthem, he is grateful and humbled to be serving as the Congregational Care Pastor.
