After making my living as an actor here in Los Angeles for over 20 years, God called me into full-time ministry in 2003. I became the Junior High Pastor here at CBC while attending the Master’s Seminary, graduating with a Diploma of Theology in 2007. My other interests include sharing my love of acting and filmmaking with young people, playing pickleball, fly-fishing and spending time with my family.

My greatest joy is to see people learn and grow through the Word of God in the power of God’s Spirit (Romans 12:2) (Galations 5:22-23) (Colossians 1:28). My prayer for Calvary Bible Church is to be a thriving, vibrant church that continues to be grounded in the Word of God and is a life-saving beacon, especially to the local community. 

In 1997, I married my sweetheart, Julie, and we are proud to have 6 children, one daughter-in-law, and now our first grandchild!  We enjoy our menagerie of pets including dogs, cats, a parakeet, chickens and Pinky the pig.
