Meet the Staff
Gail and I fell in love with Madison Park when I first began preaching during an interim period in 1999. I’m grateful the leadership invited me to stay. We love Quincy and love Madison Park.
Gail and I have three married daughters and one grandson. Joe and Michelle Ryan and Garrett Aeilts live in Lincoln, IL. Scott and Amy Bates have a home in Landing, NJ. Frank and Jill Dicken reside in Bel Air, MD.

My favorite pastimes are running, reading, and watching movies. Gail and I both enjoy walking and the great outdoors, especially mountains and rivers. We enjoy good flicks at the cinema whenever we can make time.
I have the privilege to work closely with our staff and encourage/equip them in their ministry area here at Madison Park. Together we identify ministry leaders for our current ministries being carried out and new ministries being formed.
