Then from 1975 to 1979 he was marketing director/administrator for Storage Technology Corporation of Louisville, Colorado.

After attending four years of seminary at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, he was called in 1988 to serve as Pastor of Peace and Trinity Lutheran Churches in Trail, British Columbia, Canada.
