I began this whole crazy, wonderful adventure with Jesus in the spring of 1991 right here at Faith Center. I left for Southern California that fall for ministry training at LIFE Bible College (now LIFE Pacific).
It was there that I met the love of my life, my partner in ministry and my best friend Sunshine. We were married in 1994 and have been in ministry together ever since.
Our family moved here to La Grande, Oregon in 2002 and I came on staff at Faith Center as the Associate Pastor. After a six year transition with our founding Pastor Ted Davis, I stepped into the role of Senior Pastor here in 2008. What an incredible journey it has been!
Sunshine and I continue to be blessed by all that God is doing and growing here in La Grande. We love being married and are the ridiculously proud parents of two brilliant children, Gavin and December! As typical “eastern Oregonians” we love the outdoors! Whether it’s fishing, hunting, camping or just “playing” we are big fans. We have also been known to get down with a little “Just Dance” on the Wii.
As the years have passed here, the wonder and amazement of watching God heal and mend broken hearts and lives has not diminished in the least. Our passion is to see individuals and families have a personal encounter with Christ. Knowing that just like us, when the do, they will be forever changed!
Let the adventure continue!
