God graciously saved me at the age of 17, the summer before I left home for college. I had been living a life devoted to my own glory and pleasure, but sin could not satisfy the deepest longings of my soul. My conscience was guilt ridden and I knew that I was separated from God. God drove me to my knees and I called out to Him to save me.

God answered my cries and transformed my life. He made me see that only He could satisfy my thirsty soul. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into this world as a man to live a perfect life, die, and rise again so that I could be forgiven.

I began attending Foothill Bible Church, in Upland, CA, where I experienced the love of the body of Christ, and was discipled and trained for ministry. At church I met the love of my life, Laura, and we got married in 2012. God has richly blessed us with four children, Daniel, Seth, Juliette, and Josiah. Laura is my best friend and an excellent wife. What I love the most about her is that she worships Christ and points me to Him.

After God saved me, I was hungry to know His word and tell others about Him. I attended the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA, and graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2015. I also had the privilege of being the Pastor of Student Ministries at Foothill Bible Church before I came to His Place Church.

God brought us to His Place Church in 2021. Our family has been so blessed by the love of the body here. Laura and I look forward to living life with our church family here for many, many years to come.

God has called me to teach the word of God and love His people. Like the apostle Paul, I am amazed that God would call a sinner like me to declare the glories of Christ. Paul wrote,

“To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 3:8).

If you come to HPC for a visit, I’d love to meet you.
