On staff since 2016
Where were you born? Beaufort, South Carolina (that’s why I can slip into a southern drawl so quickly . . .)
Spouse and/ or kids? I am blessed to be married to Joanna, and have three adult children (Jackson who is married to Sky, Aleah) and two still at home (Kendie, Ellie).
Favorite food? I don’t like being “pinned down” when it comes to food, so I’m answering on protest. However, if someone sat me down at Outback and then took me out for chocolate peanut butter ice cream, I would not object.
Why Ministry? Since I stepped into my first ministry training class, I sensed that this was the calling for which God designed me. I’m the most fortunate guy on the planet who gets to shepherd God’s flock with the majority of my time.
Most amazing thing about God? That He is all of who He is all of the time & that I need not doubt that anything about Him is any less than who He has always been
Name a recent book you read and enjoyed? Leadership as an Identity by Crawford Loritts
Where did you go to school? Yucaipa High, The Master’s University, Western Seminary (Portland)
Passions, hobbies, interests? I enjoy doing most anything with my family, playing and watching team sports and rooting for the UCLA Bruins. I love Jesus and His Church and helping people live out Jesus’ mission of being His ambassadors to their relational worlds.
