My Story

In 1983 I came to Christ while a student at Arizona State University while watching Christian television. My calling is based on Ephesians 4:15, so I’m committed to teaching the Word and ministering the Spirit of God to help the body of Christ grow up into the unity of the faith. I’ve served in just about every position in the church from custodian to pastor, to guest speaker.
In 2005 I married the love of my life – Donna Jean and her two now adult children Amanda and Tim, who are both married and serving the Lord. They have given us four wonderful grandchildren: Casey, Emersyn, Kendall, and Blakely Mae. While I’ve always worked a full-time job, recently my wife and I agreed to take a leap of faith and launch our ministry together.
