For reasons I’ll never understand, my remarkable wife Diana agreed to marry me in the fall of 2000, and each year that has passed since then has been better than the previous. God has blessed us with 5 wonderful kids; Acacia, Justus, Lilah, Jadon, and Isaiah. We are West-Siders through and through and can’t imagine living in any other part of the Valley.
I can’t say I grew up in a Christian home but I was generally aware of who Jesus was. I did however grow up in extremely sports-centered home and athletics dictated almost 100% of where and how we spent our family’s energy and resources. But in all of God’s sovereignty, sports landed me at a tiny Christian High School in San Diego, and it was there that God revealed himself to me and called me into his presence. I wish I could say that the subsequent 8 years of my life were filled with humble obedience, serving his people and bringing him glory, but unfortunately, that patch of history was filled with the polar opposite with a ton of my energy being put into shameful behaviors. But despite my best efforts to push God away, he is faithful!
My entrepreneurial spirit has taken me through several different professions through the years from restaurateur to landscaper, as well as much heartache and confusion! Currently, God has me on mission as a Realtor and I’m humbled to serve my clients on a daily basis.
I’m excited to see what God has in store for our congregation and it is my prayer that our corporate efforts as a church accurately reflect the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
