Acts 20:24 (NKJV) 

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. 

 

Testimony:

In October of 1986, filled with emptiness and depression from what the world had to offer, I cried out to God, asking “What is life?” Is this all there is? Are You real? The next day I went looking for a Bible that I was given in my brief time in Sunday School. As I opened the Bible and read “in the beginning God” my heart was filled with joy and peace knowing that there is a God. Over the next 5 months I began searching to find who God was and what I needed to do. In March of 1987, a friend invited me to Calvary Chapel Auburn where I accepted Jesus as my Savior! From that time I have continued to grow as His disciple through prayer and the study of His Word!

In March of 1994 I knew that the next step in my growth as His disciple was to serve Him and His body, so I began serving in the Children’s Ministry. I started as a 3rd & 4th grade teacher; then later I moved to 5th & 6th grade. Eventually I became the Assistant Children’s Ministry Director. In 2002, I went on staff full-time at Calvary Chapel Auburn as the new Children’s Ministry Pastor and in 2009 moved to the Administrative Pastor position until the Lord called me to serve as Senior Pastor at Calvary Chapel Foothill in March of 2015.
