Henry Tazelaar spacer Henry Tazelaar
Board Member

Along with being a close friend and lover of good wine, Henry's special gift to Ransom's Board of Directors is keeping our board's business agenda moving and on target. He also keeps us better connected to the professional world where obligations, advancement, and fulfillment are not always in your control, and where daily understanding of the providence and sovereignty of God are just as important as they are to someone in a ministry position.

In July of 2005 Henry became Chair of the Division of Anatomic Pathology for Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale , Arizona . He is also a Professor of Pathology at the medical school. So if you have serious heart or lung disease, he'd be the guy you'd want looking at your path slides.

Henry was drawn to Ransom's ministry partly because he appreciates our focus on Bible study and small group interactions as a way to exhibit community and foster accountability. He says, “Denis and Margie's emphasis on faithfulness in the ordinary has also been an encouragement in my daily life.”

We also like Henry on the Board because he's married to Peggy, our favorite Dutch heritage person of all time. Her love and prayers have often sustained and nourished us along with her incredible cooking gifts.

Henry stays in shape by working out and eating the South Beach Diet. Even though he doesn't consider it a good day unless he's gotten up at some ungodly hour to exercise and eaten a head of broccoli and a fish or two, he never makes me feel like a slob for getting short of breath as I walk to the refrigerator looking for a slab of butter to snack on. And he always eats almost everything I cook without a murmur.

In the summer of 2005 Henry and Peggy moved from Rochester , MN to Phoenix. The only good thing about them moving away is that before they left, they lived with us at Toad Hall for two and a half months. We know it was a tiny trial for them because on the last day Henry noted that our guest bed was a piece of, I believe he called it “a piece of junk.” I thank him for that honesty, since it convinced Denis to let me buy a new one for our visitors.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
