He is pursuing his dream: leading an amazing group of loving, dedicated, genuine, and accepting people in a fantastic and growing community as well as running a critically acclaimed coffee bar and cafe.
He's been a missionary, a worship leader, a youth pastor, a children's pastor, and ministry administrator. One thing he loves is sharing truth: truth about God, the people He made, and truth about the world around us. He has served full-time at The Lighthouse since 2000.
"Connie and I have two married children, Paul and Rachel, and two grandchildren. They have taught me a lot about life and about God's love for us. I've spiritually "adopted" many others as well. Some have moved on, and others have settled here."
