Director of High School
It encourages and strengthens me to desire to see this generation of students yearn to be captivated by God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With great joy, He has called me to shepherd the youth and care for this generation with His amazing grace. I played football at Azusa Pacific University, earning a Bachelors in Psychology, and received a Masters in Divinity from Gateway Seminary. My beautiful wife and I have been married since 2015. We met serving overseas in Malawi, Africa, working as international teachers while helping with an orphan ministry called Children of the Nations. Since 2018, we have been "living life" with our church family at RiverLakes, including our two amazing kids (Caleb and Elena)! It is our family's joy to be in community at RiverLakes, which is passionate about partnering with families and their youth in the gospel. I am excited to encourage your youth to know God's transformative love and express that in serving others. To love God's Word, cultivate intimacy with the Father, know your identity in Christ, and live out your calling empowered by the Holy Spirit. This crazy adventure called life is not meant to be lived alone, let's joyfully mature in our faith together! I love football (go Niners!)... like love it, meat, chips, salsa, guacamole, coffee, hiking, movies, listening...(did I say food?), quality conversations, and adventures! Our family welcomes you as well as our bulldog, Butters!
