I am a pastor who has been on the leading edge of ministry and church trends for many years. In 1999 I helped plant what is now a mega-church in Sparks, Nevada. During my 6 years of ministry there, I began an alternative service to engage those outside the reach of traditional church. In 2006, I and my wife Aly moved to East Village, a redeveloping neighborhood in downtown San Diego to further explore the fringes of ministry and establish a new kind of faith community.
A significant part of my journey has been mentoring and working with pastors and leaders from suburban San Diego to the dusty villages of Uganda.
I am also a Leader Breakthru approved coach and—utilizing Leader Breakthru resources—I coach leaders through each of these developmental experiences:
TRAC: Helping Christ-followers clarify where they are in their development
TRANSITION: Helping you survive and get all you can out of your in-between moment
CALLING: Clarifying life direction and the values that guide you
CONTRIBUTION: Discovering your unique influence
CONVERGENCE: Helping you to run the race so as to finish well
I have a Masters degree in Religion from Trinity Evangelical Divinity school and a Masters in Spiritual Formation from Azusa Pacific University. I am a life-long learner of following God in the way of Jesus. Aly and I live in San Diego and we have two of the most amazing kids in the world.
