He is actively involved with several charities.  He is presently on the Board of Directors of the North Platte Community Playhouse and has participated in many aspects of the theater, including directing, acting and playing in the orchestra.  Todd also is very active in the First Baptist Church, serving as a member of various boards and committees.  He holds an instrumental role in the Living Christmas Tree, an annual Christmas pageant sponsored by First Baptist.  Todd grew up on a farm near Hastings, Nebraska, where his parents and two of his brothers still farm; a third brother farms at Grant, Nebraska.
