I have had the privilege of serving as Sr. Pastor at First Baptist Church of Salinas since September 2016 and consider it one of the greatest privileges of my life to serve at this church. Since coming to trust in Jesus in High School I have enjoyed serving in ministry as a youth pastor for 22 years (in Wichita, Kansas for 12 years, then in Scottsdale, Arizona for 10 years) and for the past 6 years in different roles primarily focused on preaching and teaching in Scottsdale until answering the call to come here in September 2016. It has been a wonderful experience and I am humbled that the Lord would have me serve in these ways.
I have a wonderful wife, Dawn (25+years being married), and we are empty nesters. Our daughters (Stephanie and Heidi) live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
If you can’t find me at the church, there is a good chance that I could be on the golf course playing the most wonderful game in the world or meeting with someone over lunch.
