I’m the Senior Pastor of Grace Community Church of Seal Beach, where I have served since 2006 on staff.
My primary writing interests are about leadership development, Biblical studies, and how the Christian gospel intersects with life today.
Prior to coming to Grace, I was an intern at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (Newport Beach), Bel Air Presbyterian Church (Los Angeles), and First Presbyterian Church (Salinas, CA).
Academically, I went to UCLA (B.A. – History, Political Science, and the Study of Religion), Talbot School of Theology (M.Div., Th.M. in New Testament), and am currently a student at TEDS (D.Min.).
In my free time, I enjoy playing ice hockey (yes, in southern California), spending time with my family, and following my fantasy football teams.
