church family, family, Life experiences, Ministry


I just wanted to post a brief blog about a landmark Brenda and have reached this month.

30 years ago this month we started in ministry.

June, 1980

After graduating from Central Bible College in Spring field Missouri we landed together in my home town of Davenport Iowa to serve Westside assembly of God as youth pastors.

Here are the great communities we have lived in over the past 30 years.







It has been an amazing journey and we have met some amazing people.

Each community gave our family something special and created amazing memories for us.

The church’s we served out of all had one thing in common.  Just regular people attempting to do there best to make a positive impact in their world.

Thank you to all who we have had the opportunity to know and work with.

  1. Congratulations

    To you both for 30trs of serving our Lord!

    I’m a native Springfieldian myself, so perhaps we’ve met…It could’ve been at El Taco on Kearney!

    God Bless You Both!

    Congrats to both of you! You’ve lived in some great places. Should Jesus tarry His coming it is my prayer that He will give us wisdom to Turn the Tide for the Next Generation!

    Steve, congratulations. You probably wont remember me but my name is Ken Kline. Ironically enough, it was about 30 years or so, maybe a little less, that you led me to the Lord a youth meeting at the “hanger” Westside. Anyway, that brings me to my point. I began a book project in 1996 that evolved into a five volume series chronicling Holy Spirit renewal in the Quad-City area throughout the twentieth century. I located many ads about “divine healing meetings” conducted by the “Lummer Party” as well as Westside. I would like to get you copies of the five volumes if you would like. My email is or you can call my work (Uncle Ikes Music: 1-563-556-6052 Mon thru Thur after 3 pm.
