Executive Pastor


I was raised in the Bay Area, went to Northwestern University for my undergrad where I met my wife, Erin, and I began to sense a call to full time ministry. I attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena for graduate school and began pastoring at Oceanhills in 2003. Erin and I have 3 kids, a dog, and love being a part of the Oceanhills family.

What's your favorite thing about Oceanhills?: It's not boring- our doors are wide open for anyone to come and join us. We can push, challenge, disagree, and still love each other in unity as we try to follow Jesus.
