I am a Christian, a husband, a father (7 times…three have preceded us Home) and a missionary living in the beautiful town of Yakima, WA.
Born and raised in Tacoma. Graduated from Stadium High School – yes, the one in that movie – and did some time at Whitman College and the University of Idaho before graduating from Wazzu. After Cheryl and I were married we taught two years at the MeySen Academy in Sendai, Japan. When we returned, I spent two years as an intern at the E-Free Church in Pullman (now the Evangelical Free Church of the Palouse). From there, we moved to Vancouver, BC for two years while I finished an Masters in Christian Studies at Regent College. In 2003, the doors opened for us to come to Bellingham and begin work on planting a church through A29. In January 2005, Oikos Fellowship was launched and since that day God has seen fit to continue blessing this little work. We have since left A29 and joined hands with the 3Strand Network, which is made up of a handful of like-minded churches from the PNW committed to supporting church planting in the region. In 2017, I was officially welcomed as a minister into the PCA.
