I grew up in San Diego CA. I was raised by a single mom, with two brothers, and a sister. I grew up knowing there was a God but had no relationship with him nor truly believed in him, and only went to church for weddings and funerals.
When I was 18, I moved to Spokane WA where my sister was living, this proved to be a gift from God. I started attending Life Center Church a few years later and when I was 23 I gave my life to Christ. Not long after that I started volunteering in the youth ministry and eventually doing an internship while attending Bible classes between Moody Bible Institute and Spokane Ministry Institute. This led to an Associate Jr High Director position that I split with working on the church’s facility management team. I did this for about 5 years and in 2009 I accepted the position of Students Ministries Pastor of Lake City Church in Moses Lake WA.
My Fiancée followed me to Moses Lake, and I married Cassie in 2010! After a few years in Moses Lake we decided it was time to move to Cassie’s hometown and closer to her family, this led us to Bellingham WA. My wife took her dream job as a nurse at St Josephs and I began a career in real estate. In 2014 we started attending Grace Church and fell in love with the church community.
Fast forward to June 2019 when I was hired onto the staff part time as the Communication Director (I still do real estate as well).
