After serving 16 years as an Athletic Trainer at the NCAA Division I level the Lord called my wife and I into full time ministry. We served a missionary internship at Hallmark Baptist Church (Fort Worth, TX) before being approved as BBFI Missionaries to the Philippines. After a short time in the Philippines we sensed the Lord was leading us home to minister in the States.
The Lord led us to Temple Baptist Church and Temple Christian school. Temple Baptist Church had been a faithful supporter of our ministry on the field. There is no doubt in our mind that the Lord has brought us to Temple Ministries to use our gifts to further His ministry here at Temple and His Kingdom around the world.
I grew up on the west coast in Visalia, CA. I attended Linfield College in McMinnville, OR for two years before transferring and graduating from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA with a B.A. in Sports Medicine. I earned a M.S. in Athletic Training from the University of Arizona. I have furthered my education in Curriculum and Instruction at Northern Arizona University, completed a Concentration in Missions from Louisiana Baptist University, and am currently enrolled in the PhD in Theology program at Louisiana Baptist University.
