He is a teaching elder in Great Lakes Presbytery and the stated clerk of that court. He is associate professor of biblical studies at Reformed Bible College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Opposing the affiliation is William A. Rocap Jr., a ruling elder in the Lakeshore Church, Denver, North Carolina, and a former moderator of Central Carolina Presbytery. Though retired as an executive with the Meredith Corporation, he continues active as a consultant to the publishing industry.
