I was born and raised in Southern California, in a loving home along with my four brothers. I faithfully attended Catholic church every Sunday but heard little of God during the week, never hearing or understanding sin and the saving power of Jesus Christ. God had a hand in my life early. While attending Dana Hills High School, I was invited to a bible study and then invited to hear the Gospel on several occasions. I met my beautiful wife Darci in 1981, attended UCLA, and we were then married in 1989 at Mission San Juan Capistrano. God continued to press on our hearts (praise God for His irresistible grace, and that He saves us through no work of our own!). We began attending a Bible-teaching church, and as we were saturated with the Truth that sets us free, we joyfully turned to Christ as our Lord and Savior.
We have four wonderful children, Anthony, Kaila, James and Hannah, and currently live in Murrieta. While at Faith Bible Church, through the rich blessing of God’s Truth being clearly taught and applied to our lives, we have continued to grow spiritually and seek to apply our giftedness and resources toward His Kingdom through FBC. At FBC, I serve on the Jail Ministry seeking to reach those in chains, I serve on the Shepherd Team for the West Murrieta Regional Ministry Gathering, and am helping to develop and lead the FBC Missions effort as part of the FBC Missions Ministry. I have a heart for the weak and wounded, a love for missions and currently serve as the Executive Director of Sufficiency of Scripture Ministries, which was formed to support Shannon Hurley, an FBC-supported missionary to Uganda.
