Pastor, Elder


My wife Jennifer and I have been members of Grace Community Church for the last 20 years. We still have three of our four children at home. I have been involved in the Leadership of the church for the last 10 years and have now been pastoring for last year. God has placed a calling and passion in my heart to preach the good news, and I am excited for the opportunities that He is giving me to live those out at this Church. My other job, is to administrate a non-profit human service foundation that serves foster youth and families and runs a residential teen program. I coach a little High School wrestling and enjoy exploring God's creation on a mountain bike or under a back pack. I believe that God has called us as His children, to live out our faith in very real, practical and at times, difficult ways on this earth, and that He has purpose for all of the ups and downs. I believe that we should be living intentionally for Him in every and all situations and circumstances of life, and I desire to see His children thrive spiritually in the face of those circumstances.
