My Life's Verse: "But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." Acts 20:24
I was raised in Southern California. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and received Christ when I was in college. I came from a Jewish background and how wonderful it was to find the Jewish Messiah.
The passion of my life was and is the Word of God. I wanted to know it and I wanted to build others up in the Word. God had given me a desire for the ministry and in 1990 I graduated from The Master's Seminary with an M.Div. degree in Bible Exposition. I am committed to the expository preaching of God's Word.
The Lord has given me all the desires of my heart in bringing my godly wife, Laurie, to me and in giving us two amazing sons, Joel and Matthew. It is wonderful that by God's grace I, like Peter, can care for and feed God's people with His precious Word. (John 21:15-17)
I am so greatly blessed to serve the Lord here at Faith Bible Church, where we seek to equip believers in the Word for the work of the ministry, and exalt Christ as Lord and Savior. I've had the privilege of pastoring other churches, but my wife and I are overjoyed with the sweet spirit of the people here, their receptiveness to the Word of God and their love for others. God is doing great things here!
Your Servant in Christ --
