MY ROLE AT CHURCH ON THE HILL

Media, records, stats, & presentations


MY FAMILY

My wife, Michelle whom I met here at the church, have been married since 2000 and have two children - Morgan and Nathan. 1 rescued Border Collie named Frannie


MY BACKGROUND

I was invited to VBS in 4th grade to a Nazarene church in the East Bay Area of California and in my Junior year of High School made a decision to surrender to Christ. An opening for a youth pastor position at Church on the Hill in 1995 opened the way for me to join my former youth pastor and family on the journey to Oregon. I  had the privilege serving as a youth leader and led worship with teens that are now staff, board members, worship leaders at our church today as well as community leaders. Formerly a home builder, I found myself eventually filling a couple of open positions in 2009 at Church on the Hill.
