Vern has shepherded churches in California, Nevada and Colorado, as well as conducted ministry in Poland, the Czech Republic and Uganda. Teaching in churches and at conferences has been through Bible books (Genesis, Revelation & books in between) as well as specific practical topics (such as God’s insights into marriage, and elders in church leadership).
He and his wife, Nancy, enjoy interacting with the lives of their two sons and a daughter, all married, and eleven grandchildren.
Vern brings an academic and practical background in science, engineering and business, capped with a D.Min. from Tyndale Seminary.
