I came to know the Lord in 1995 through a friend's witness at work. Vocationally, I have been a machinest for the past 24 years, but the Lord called me to fulltime ministry 12 years ago. Since 1995, I have been serving in various ministries (children, youth, college aged etc.)

In 2006, I married my wife, and in 2007 we began praying about beginning a Calvary Chapel in Longview, TX. Once the Lord affirmed the call, He moved us here in March of 2008, and we began the fellowship with a Bible study in our home in May of 2008.

We added a son to our family in May of 2010 and our daughter in November of 2012. We love the Lord and we are enjoying this season in our life.
