I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and worked as a graphic artist and electro-mechanical designer as an adult. I began working in the children’s ministry of my home church after accepting the Lord in 1977.
I married my wife Sue in 1984, and immediately went into full-time ministry as the Youth Pastor and Outreach Director of East Bay Faith Center in San Leandro, California. There, we became active in missions work as well as with children and teens. In 1989, we moved to Tulsa Oklahoma, where I graduated from Rhema Bible College while working for Willie George Ministries and Church On The Move in Tulsa. We traveled as Children’s Evangelists in the U.S. and abroad until our move to The Rock Church and World Outreach Center in 1994.
We have three children and four grandchildren.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. - Hebrews 11:6
Hiking, drawing, fishing, writing, traveling, gardening, and playing guitar.
My all around favorite food is Sue’s home-cooked fried chicken, but I also enjoy BBQ spare ribs, sweet potato pie, Thai, and Chinese food. I’ve been known to frequent Starbucks, and Red Lobster.
