Our family came to The Spoken Word Christian Church seeking a church that truly loves God and truly loves people. Before we arrived, my wife Nancy and I had been faithfully ministering to the inmates in the Orange County jails. We came to The Spoken Word with a heart for the lost, the broken and the troubled. As a Chaplain in the Orange County Jail Ministry, I taught Bible studies, conducted church services, and provided Christian counseling for the men and women struggling with life’s trials. I believe that glorifying God by reflecting God’s grace to others is the true business of life.

As a former high school teacher and language arts major, I understand the importance of the systematic study and clear presentation of Scripture. I strive to draw near to God through His word and to help others realize the wonder and treasure of a holy and loving God.

In addition to being a teaching pastor, I also enjoy playing guitar on the worship team, participating in the Men’s Studies, and being active in several of the ministries at The Spoken Word. When I’m not at church Nancy and I love to spend time with our beloved son Johnny and our wonderful daughter-in-law, Michelle.
