Our New Site And Design Announced

Tonight the Circle City Villages board met with members of the Greater Gardens Neighborhood Associaton to present our plan to build a tiny house village at 1318 S Lynhurst Dr. We are thankful to partner with Lynhurst Baptist Church in pursuing this project. The plan is to build the village in two phases with 14 houses built in the first phase. After giving the first 14 residents a chance to adjust to living in this type of setting we will evaluate the right time to expand the village to 28 tiny houses. Below are renderings of our current design plan.

This is the first of many public meetings we plan to hold to communicate with neighbors about our plan. Pay attention to announcements of future meetings on this site and on our Facebook page. We look forward to engaging with more community members on how we can work together to create a place where friends experiencing homelessness can find healing and take the next steps to a sustainable life in an environment where they are supported and embraced.

I grew up in northeast Wisconsin. After high school, I moved to Minneapolis, MN to attend North Central University and graduated 1992 with a degree in Biblical Studies and Humanities. I spent most of the next fifteen years in the Twin Cities area until my family and I moved to Indiana in 2007. For most of the first seventeen years after college, I was involved in university ministry either as a volunteer, bi-vocational, or full-time campus minister. Through those years, I also worked in the main street marketplace as a retail manager/trainer and as a service representative in the insurance industry. I've also worked in various education roles. Most recently, I have been working on various projects addressing homelessness in Indianapolis and as team lead for Diakonos Community, a Communitas International missional initiative. Through this ministry, we seek to build missional communities in Indianapolis that serve and bring the life of Christ to those on the margins of society. Our strategy is to collaborate with community agencies that serve those in need and share Christ through meaningful relationships. I am blessed with a wonderful wife, three amazing daughters, and two cats (can't forget the cats, LOL). As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, gardening, and going to the YMCA together. I also enjoy fishing, riding bicycle, and being involved in whatever my daughters are doing. Though I have not lived in the Green Bay area for over 20 years, I am still a major Packer fan.
