Ted was born in Langdon, North Dakota, and after graduation from Grace Bible Institute he spent the next 20 years in Ethiopia. His ministry included church planting and training local pastors in the Bible School. Upon his return to the States, he was pastor of Newton Bible Church for the next 12 years.

His family invites you to celebrate a life well lived.
