Moving to Kenosha in 2006 has quickly become one of the best decisions for my family.
Some of the reasons are based on convenience. Kenosha’s shopping and growing list of new places to eat, along with the established Kenosha restaurants, are definitely a highlight for my family. The parks, bike trails, being “On the Lake” and places like Lake Andrea, the YMCA and Rec Plex are all great places to stay healthy (especially after eating at all the Italian restaurants in town). All of these conveniences are what makes Kenosha a distinct place to live.
Then there is the almost perfect grid of streets that make Kenosha easy to get around. My wife and I lived in Milwaukee where it took at least 30 minutes to get anywhere. Before that, we both went to school and worked in Minneapolis. Depending on the time of day it could take as much as one hour to go from one side of the Twin Cities to the other. But in Kenosha, the fact that I can get to almost anywhere in this city in about 15 minutes or less makes life easier.
It’s not all about convenience….a lot has to with the people who make up our community. On the street that I live my neighbors consist of a teacher, a city employee, managers that commute to Chicago, a retired couple, an engineer, a baker, a widower and Police Officer for the Kenosha Police Department.
What I see in my neighbors is that each person is very committed to family and involved in the community of Kenosha. From working and volunteering, to taking their children (and grandchildren) to play in games at the CYC…people in Kenosha are dedicated to being a part of this community.
In the Bible, the Apostle Paul gives us some great advice for a healthy community. He said, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others too.” (Philippians 2:4).
As a husband and father I love calling Kenosha home. As a pastor I value the opportunity to serve at a church that is committed to this community through acts of service. My prayer is that as individuals and through the organizations that we are a part of that we will do our part and “take interest in others” and make a commitment to keep Kenosha a great city by serving those around us.
