I was born in the former Yugoslavia and my parents and I moved to "West-Germany" when I was three-years-old. I attended kindergarten there and graduated from high school there in 1987.I studied theology at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Debrecen, Hungary. It was a very enriching experience for me to go from free Germany to live and study in a Communist country. I am grateful for the experience. I came to the USA because I was drafted into all of the civil war conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, and my conscience would not let me fight in this war. I met my wife Constance in 1993, and we were married in 1995. We have two children, Alexei 12-years-old and Caroline, 0-years-old. God has been good to us and we grow in Him one step at a time. I have lived in the USA since 1992.I am a US. citizen.
