I received Jesus Christ as Saviour at the age of 12 and started attending Westside Baptist Church of Bremerton through their Bus Ministry. Bill Wambsganss was my pastor and mentor through my teen years and it was under his ministry that I surrendered to the call to preach. I went to Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City and then came back to Westside Baptist Church to serve on staff under the new pastor, Craig Houston. I continued my education at Sound Baptist Bible College earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology. I have been privileged to serve as the Associate Pastor at Westside Baptist Church where I was on staff for nine years and saw God build the church greatly. Co-laboring with Craig Houston was the most beneficial opportunity I had in training for the work of pastoral ministry. I currently am privileged to serve as the Pastor of Napavine Baptist Church in Napavine, WA.
My wife Jaimee and I met at Westside Baptist Church. She graduated from West Coast Baptist College of Lancaster, California. We currently have six wonderful children.
