I grew up in the Southern California town of LaCrescenta with my parents and three siblings. I gave my life to Christ at the young age of six and felt a clear call to the ministry at age twelve. I left home to attend Biola University where I met my godly and beautiful wife Jane. We were married in 1987 and have been blessed with four children, two son-in-laws and three grandchildren, all but one who currently live in the Denver area.
I attended Talbot School of Theology (Masters of Divinity) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (Doctorate in Christian Leadership). I have had the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor of two churches and the President/CEO of Mount Hermon Christian Camp. I am compelled to see lives transformed from the inside-out by the work of Jesus, and He is the reason that I have given my life to lead, preach, mentor, and serve in ministry settings.
On a personal note, Jane and I love to spend as much time as possible with our kids and grandkids! I also enjoy sports (especially baseball and football), taking long walks, reading, and spending time with people.
