The guy who oversees the staff and operations of Abundant Life (aka Executive Pastor!)


I've enjoyed a 25-year secular career in mechanical engineering and executive management, along with years of volunteer ministry service. My wife Cynthia and I have been at Abundant Life since we started in 1989 and have served in most every ministry, including me serving on the leadership at Abundant Life since its beginning!

I joined the staff as Executive Pastor in 2004 as we moved into our first building. Since then we've grown from 800 to 3000, and to multiple campuses... So I manage CHANGE! And Abundant Life is always changing.

Cynthia and I have two grown kids, Chris and Laura. Chris is married to Cate, and they have a toddler named Finley.

I enjoy cycling, fixing up cars, houses, you name it, and creating about anything. Recently I've taken up sculpting along side of my wife Cynthia in her pottery studio.
