I’m a Santa Rosa native growing up in what was a rural area. Post high school, following the tug of God on my heart, I attended San Jose Bible college followed by two years at Genesis, a discipleship training school here in Santa Rosa. Graduation day was also wedding day for Dawna and I. Soon after, I stepped into the construction trade where I continued for over 30 years, during which Dawna and I built our home and raised and homeschooled our three kids. Heidi, our fourth, only lived to just under four months of age.
After years of ministry as a lay person, God released me to begin stepping into full time ministry in 2008, a long held desire. Being SRCC’s executive pastor blends the familiar (my years of construction and practical experience) with my passion – seeing God use his sons and daughters to touch and uplift the lives of those around them.
Dawna and I now have 5 grandkids between our two son’s families in Tahoe and Twain Harte. Our daughter is a missionary with YWAM in Papua New Guinea.
My place of renewal is being in God’s creation. I love backpacking in the high sierra.
