I grew up and came to faith in the Lord Jesus here at Centerpoint Community Church. After attending college at UCLA, seminary at Dallas Theological Seminary, and serving as a pastor in Tulare, CA, the Lord called my wife and me back to our home church! We are overjoyed to serve at the church and in the community where we came to know our Lord and Father.
My deepest passions in ministry center on spiritual formation and discipleship. God, in his kindness, draws me ever closer to him every day. It’s my extreme joy to be a part of that process in the life of others. My personal interests include Christian hip hop, running, everything UCLA, Ancient Greek, board games, coffee, and working on and driving my dad’s Triumph TR6.
My wife, Karyssa, also grew up and came to faith in our Lord Jesus at Centerpoint. She works currently at Koinonia Home for Teens and is earning her Masters in Clinical Counseling at Western Seminary. She is passionate about Kenya, Christ-centered community, and sushi.
