Associate Pastor- Couples Ministries office: ext. 230

How did you come to join the team at Capo Beach Church?

My wife Karen and I landed at CBC in 1990 and we could feel the Lord's presence and knew we found our church home and wanted to get involved serving the Lord. Fast forward on a missions trip in Mexico, I felt the Lord calling me into ministry so I started taking bible classes and counseling courses along with serving in many different ministries. During that time, my calling was further defined by being ordained as a full time pastor here at Capo Beach Church. I believe the Lord gave me His passion and desire to build and strengthen Christ centered marriages.

Describe your role at CBC in one sentence:

As a Pastor at CBC , I spend most of my time counseling and teaching pre-marital and married couples classes, as well as officiating Christ centered weddings.

If you woke up tomorrow morning as a Disney character who would you be? Why?
