I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of California, but got to Idaho as quickly as I could. I grew up in a Christian family and was ordained as a Presbyterian pastor in 1985. My wife Charla and I made the move to Idaho in 1991, and I have been pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church since its beginning in 2014. My passion is to teach and preach God’s Word. I am a graduate of Fresno State University and San Francisco Theological Seminary. Charla and I have one adult son and one grandson (just ask me!). In my free time I like gardening, hiking the trails of the Boise foothills, and watching San Francisco Giants games with Charla.
