I am blessed to be the husband of one wife, Lisa, for twenty-nine years and father to three children, ages 17 to 24. We have lived in Bend for twenty-two years. Both Lisa and I, as well as our children, were saved in our childhood. The Lord has consistently been gracious as he has led us and kept us. As I mature in faith, I can say along with Paul, “I am chief among sinners”, as I realize my utter dependency on my mighty Savior.
We have been a part of Grace Bible since Easter 2013, when Crossroads Community Church joined with Grace. I served as a bi-vocational pastor/elder at Crossroads for four years, and prior to that was part of pastoral preaching teams for seven years. Lisa and I have been involved in church ministry and leadership from the early years of our marriage, serving and teaching in children’s classes and home fellowship groups. I also served on church council and was part of a pastoral support team. During the past fifteen years, I have been leading and mentoring men in discipleship groups.
We are so thankful to be part of the body at Grace Bible.
