John Denham, President
Facilities Manager- Grace Church Roseville, MN
Facility Manager of Grace Church Roseville since 2003, early member of the Minnesota Association of Church Facility Managers and the Membership Committee. Following a major expansion at Grace Church I was provided the unique experience and resulting perspective, as its first facility manager, to develop the position and its associated operations. MACFM proved to be a great network for me in doing this. I really appreciate the organization for the resource it has been with the sharing of expertise in casual conversation, vendor contacts, presentations, and shared problem solving. I also appreciate MACFM for the camaraderie and professionalism it brings to our unique niche in this field. Just prior to Grace my experience I was in operations development and management for a national retailer. This included the development of back office systems, the training of franchise owners and corporate managers, and acting as liaison between the office and the field. I also hold a degree in landscape architecture from the University of Minnesota. But that is part of a much larger story for another time. Out of work you will find me pursuing art, all things outdoors, as well as cross cultural opportunities. My wife and I have lived in St. Paul for 25 years and have two adult daughters.
Josh Euerle, Past-President
Facilities Manager - Riverside Church, Big Lake, MN
I’m Josh Euerle. I grew up in rural Wisconsin. In 1991, my family moved to Dallas TX where I lived for 9 years before moving back north to Minnesota. I graduated from Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas TX. My wife and I served for 3 years as Youth Pastors small church in Duncanville, TX, and then I became a high school teacher for 2 years at Christ for the Nations Academy in Dallas, June of 2000 my wife and I moved back "up north" to Monticello MN. We both love it up here: the four seasons… the many lakes on… the snow at Christmas time… etc… In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, hanging out with friends, hunting, fishing, hiking, gardening, woodworking, watching movies, and sports; and pretty much anything having to do with the outdoors In December of 2004 I began working for Riverside Church. It has truly been a pleasure to serve at a church where God is moving and growing His kingdom! I was referred MACFM a few years ago by my executive pastor. He told me that it might be a good organization to get involved with… he was right. Over the past few years, have had the privilege of being a part of the MACFM. This organization has helped me become a better facilities manager. The relationships I have formed other facilities managers and vendors have been invaluable. It has been exciting to see this organization more than double in size since I have become a member, and I am looking forward to seeing it continue to grow.

Dave became a member of MACFM about six years ago after hearing of the group from another member. Being able to associate with others who are doing the same kind of work and dealing with the same issues has been very encouraging, and the support from the various vendors priceless. The fellowship is also wonderful and the monthly meeting a highlight of the month.

Mike Polley Vender/Affiliate Member Rep

I then accepted a Corporate Security Director position with General Dynamics, an international defense contractor. In charge of United States Operations, I was responsible for meeting the Department of Defense physical security standards; employee and visitor security clearances and investigations. Upon retirement from General Dynamics I moved into security consulting and sales. I am presently employed by UHL Company as a Business Development Manager in the Security and Fire Division responsible for providing card access, video surveillance, intrusion and fire alarm systems. I have been involved with MACFM for several years. It is a pleasure to work with each of the MACFM church members. I am humbled to be able to enjoy the Christ centered fellowship during the monthly meetings with church and vendor members alike. I have been active in several of the service projects and participate in these opportunities annually. It has been a privilege to represent the vendors as a Co-Chair for the 2102 MACFM EXPO. Being elected to serve as the Vendor/Affiliate Council Representative is truly be an honor.
