About My Family

Lynn and I have been married 38 years. We are blessed to have raised three children and now have eight wonderful grandchildren and counting! We are both pretty creative and down-to-earth. Humor and fun have always been a hallmark of our home. If you are a random guy on a street corner, we have probably met you and you are our friend.

About My Church Plant

Lynn and I watch God move in such dramatic ways here at Springs of Life Church in Casitas Springs, Calif. The area in the past has been riddled with crime and drugs. Working as a team, Lynn and I both bring experience, not only from the ministry side, but also have secular training. I have years of working maintenance and construction. Lynn's experience in health marketing provides vast knowledge of social services. Our replant started in October 2017 start date, but we were on site for two years prior to the actual launch. We arrived at a dilapidated facility knowing we had our work cut out for us.

God has huge plans for Springs of Life and us. He never disappoints. We stand amazed at how God is working to bring in people to stand alongside us and completely transform a community and beyond. We are dreaming BIG, because God is big!  

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.

Pray

For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America.
For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve.
For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents.
For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.
