On staff since 2017
(503) 656-8582, ext. 103
Where were you born? Covina, Calif.
Spouse or kids? I'm married to Ellie my high school sweetheart and we have two kids, Tegan is 6 and Davie is 5. I believe the technical term for my children is "high energy". We also have a 90lb dog named Barry and yes, he is allowed on the furniture because we can't get him off.
What do you do here? I get to lead here as the primary preacher on Sunday mornings and lead our staff to discern and fulfill the vision God has given us together as a church.
Favorite food? Salad. For some reason I'm crazy for the greens. Also I could probably eat the skin off of 8 Costco rotisserie chickens.
Why Ministry? God has given me a deep desire to see the people of His church taking part in his mission to reach the lost and make disciples. He's also given me gifts to be able to lead, encourage and equip people to do this. I find such great joy in seeing God use the people of OCEC live in such a way that fruit is produced for the kingdom.
Favorite Attribute of God? His grace. I simply cannot fathom how God can know me with all my strengths and weaknesses, and still choose to love me and give me life.
Where did you go to school? Covina High, Cal State Bakersfield & Talbot School of Theology.
Passions: I love fixing things, spending time with Ellie and our kids, watching movies, and thinking of creative ways to make our associate pastors life more difficult.
