I am currently an ordained Pastor with The Foursquare Church.
Jesus saved my life in December of 1998. I was baptized a couple weeks later. Before going under, my pastor asked if I had anything to say. I told him that I had made it a point to live deliberately (H.D. Thoreau), and that I now intended to live deliberately for Jesus.
I started on the worship team the following Sunday and have been serving ever since.
In the spring of 1999 Sharri and I were married and moved to Phoenix, Arizona a few months later. We began attending Grace Chapel Foursquare Church in Scottsdale, AZ. in August of that same year.
I was invited to join the staff at Grace Chapel full time in August of 2004 as an Assistant Pastor. During my service there I was Youth Pastor and Evangelism and Worship Ministries were also my responsibilities.
I was privileged to be the Foursquare Youth Ministry Representative for the state of Arizona from 2005 until the redistricting in 2009. During that time I directed four district summer camps, was Assistant Director for another, and camp speaker for yet one more.
Prior to joining the staff, I was a member of the Grace Chapel Worship Ministry beginning in 1999 and was also a member of the church council for 3 years.
I was ordained by The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in October of 2009.
I spent the years of 1987-1996 doing musical theatre professionally. During that time I ended up acting, singing, dancing, writing, directing, and/or choreographing for shows that entertained a cumulative audience more than 800,000 people.
I have also worked as a stock broker (Charles Schwab, 2000-2004), a teacher’s assistant for the Tucson Unified School District (1987), a professional stand-up comic (1990-1992), as well a retail sales associate, sign builder, and a travel agent.
I was Senior Pastor at Radiant Church- The Newport Oregon Foursquare Church from 2010-2015.
I was also an Associate Pastor at The Springs Church in Chandler, AZ from 2015-2019.
God has a plan for everyone. This is mine.... so far.
