My call to full-time ministry came while I was counseling at Mount Hermon at the age of 20. Attending Biola University and Western Seminary confirmed my desire to shepherd God's people. I have been blessed with an incredible wife to journey with me, two fantastic children, and a daughter-in-law who has provided much laughter and joy on our adventure as a family. In September 2003, I became the pastor of Bernal Bible Church after spending nine years as a youth pastor in Morgan Hill. In 2019 I received my Doctorate and currently teach leadership classes in the master's program at William Jessup University part-time. After 19 years at Bernal Bible Church, I began a new adventure serving the NAB pastors and congregations in the Pacific Northwest as the Regional Minister. Paul says, "For I am determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." To this end, my life's desire is for all I serve to grow in their joy and love for Jesus.
The NAB Northwest exists to resource, network, and enable local churches to become disciple-making congregations to the glory of God. And therefore, we have made it our aim to partner together, investing time and resources to strengthen the Great Commission, disciple-making health of our churches.
