I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. While I attended church all my life, I didn’t receive Christ as my Savior until I was nine years old. As a teenager I knew God was calling me to ministry, so I began preparing by attending Southern California College, now Vanguard University. That’s where I met my wife Beverly. We’ve been married since 1971 and have three grown children and eight beautiful grandchildren. We’ve been ministering in Woodland since 1995.
I was born and raised in Woodland. I enlisted in the US Navy after one semester of college. It was at boot camp that I heard the “Good News” of salvation in Christ Jesus and at the age of 19 I received Jesus as my Savior. However, it was not until six years later that I surrendered my life to Jesus as Lord and began my walk with Him. Now, many years later I continue to acknowledge my need of Him each day as I follow Christ my Shepherd. My wife Billie and I have been married since 1964 and have three children and six grandchildren.
I was raised in Yolo County, but moved away for several years. My wife, Andrea, and I got married and returned to Woodland upon the birth of the first of our two sons. I work for the City of Woodland. I like to be stretched by honest, straightforward teaching and look forward to the growth of believers in the church.
