I met my wife Kathy while in seminary in San Diego and we have been married since 1981. I was a Youth Pastor in the Oceanside/Carlsbad/Vista, California area for 7 years. Then Kathy and I moved to Chandler, Arizona to start Sun Valley Community Church in 1990. We have lived in Parker since 1998.
We are thankful to God for our adult children, Allie and Kevin. Allie married Sam in December of 2011- and they gave us our grandson, Jack, on February 6, 2014 and our granddaughter, Skylar, on May 4, 2016. I have been the Lead Pastor of Crossroads since September 16, 2003.
When I came the church was averaging about 80 people. I am humbled and thankful that I have been given the privilege of being the under-shepherd of such an amazing church. My prayer is that the theme of my life would be a reflection of what John the Baptist said in John 3:30: “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
