I grew up in Southern California and married my wife, Linda, in 1968. We have three daughters, Lynnette, Sharalyn, and Stephanie, and four pre-school grandchildren, all living close by. I graduated from Azusa Pacific College in 1969, Fuller Theological Seminary in 1972 and 1983, and completed my teaching credential at CSUSB in 1995.
I was ordained in the United Methodist Church in 1972 and 1974, serving as minister of Youth and Education, then pastor in charge until 1985. Then we built our own house, and I worked in construction, including doing general contracting, while planting an independent charismatic church. We also home-schooled our children through high school. Since 1993, I have been teaching in public school 11 years in chemistry at Rialto High School and doing church work as a volunteer. I have also had international teaching opportunities to train leaders for the end-time harvest.
My greatest joy is to see God at work transforming lives. Linda and I were both born again as children and blessed with Christian parents. Our own marriage broke up after 13 years, but with God’s help we rebuilt it. We have seen God rebuild other marriages, restore broken souls and spirits, heal physical bodies, and change the weather, all in miraculous answers to prayer. Our Psalm 91 covenant with God and our change from poverty to wealth according to His promises has given us many testimonies, as well, including godly sons-in-law and healthy grandchildren. We want to see others experience the fullness of God’s blessing in their lives.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. - Matthew 6:33
