I was born and have always lived in California. I attended Talbot Seminary (Biola University), where I received a Master of Arts in Christian Education in 1987. I served as youth pastor in an Evangelical Free Church in Southern California for 17 years; and, also have ordination with EFC of America. My wife Heidi and I were married in 1989, and live in Yorba Linda, CA. God has blessed us with three wonderful adult children – Chelsie, Caleb, and Maddison. We joined Reign Ministries in 2000. I love my job… I get to take students on missions trips; teach them what it means to love and serve Jesus with all of their heart, mind, and strength; and, motivate them to pass that on to others. In addition to leading summer Royal Servants trips, I lead many youth group ministry trips throughout the year to inner-city Los Angeles and also work to mentor and train Youth Pastors.
News and Politics, volleyball, and frisbee golf.
Subway Sandwiches – BLT or Turkey & Cheese, I alternate between the two.
Rummikub games with my wife, even though she wins most of the time. Chocolate Chip ice cream. Seeing students serve Jesus.
That when I grow up I will start to drink coffee – but I won’t because it stunts my growth.
