I was born in England and lived there till I was 11 years old. My family then moved to Long Island, New York. In Middle school I had a friend that asked me to go to church with him. I kindly refused every week. I believed that there was a God but all of my church experience had taught me that church was boring and irrelevant. My friend kept asking me to go to his youth group and I finally did. It was nothing like I expected. I had fun and I learned that Jesus wanted to have a personal relationship with me. I gave my life to Christ as a freshman in High School. My family moved to Fresno, CA right before my Junior year. After graduating I went on to college at Fresno State and also started working at Northwest Church. Ministry is all I have ever really done. God has taken my wife Crystal, and our two kids on some pretty crazy adventures over the years and we are excited to be in Texas now, and to be a part of what God is doing at ACC.
