I became a Christian in high school and was blessed with a community of people who showed me what it meant to live life with Christ, which naturally led to serving. My wife, Kathryn, and I married in 2003 and we have 4 wonderful children.

We are from the East Valley but have spent the last 15 years trying to plant a church in Turkey. The needs of our children’s development to adulthood has brought us back to AZ where we are glad to be near family and friends.
Hospitality is a hallmark of Turkish culture and I hope to share that blessing I received. I love a challenge and helping others.  As pastor of Community & Global Ministry, I hope to support the community & global partners of the church and serve all who come across my path.
