I grew up in Danville, California – a small town in the suburbs of San Francisco. I have been serving on staff in youth ministry for over a decade and have received a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Palm Beach Atlantic University and Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. Working in youth ministry gives me the wonderful joy of walking alongside students as they discover who they are and pointing them toward Christ. Prior to First Pres, I was most recently in Pasadena, California where I met my wonderful wife, Heather. We were married in October 2016 and recently purchased our first home together.
