I was raised Catholic and – through many twists and turns – accepted Christ as an almost 30-year-old. Since then, I very imperfectly strive to honor the Lord and to show the love of Jesus on my face in all situations. While I can’t select only one verse to call a “life verse,” I’ve found this encouragement in 1 Thessalonians 5 to be a great guide and daily reminder: “Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (vv16-18).

Edna and I have been married for nearly 42 years. We have three daughters and six grandchildren, plus a foster grandchild. Few things bring greater joy than seeing our family grow — as individuals and in Christ. After a career in information technology, I serve clients as a strategic technology consultant.

We’ve attended Worship Center for just over three years. We feel blessed to grow in a church that values and strongly encourages devotion to Jesus and his Word. We lead a small group and find this to be an incredibly valuable ministry to strengthen each other’s faith and Christian walk. We love serving as pre-marital mentors and offering our experiences through Financial Peace. I remain excited by Worship Center’s mission and growth and look forward to contributing in a new way.
