Hi and thanks for stopping by. In 1995 I left the business world to follow a call to vocational ministry, that started out as a worship leader in Guymon, OK and culminated in the planting of Faith Community Church.

My wife Virginia and I co-pastor here at Faith Community Church which we officially started on March 28, 2004.  We landed in Jacksonville with our three kids in December of 2000, but as of August 2014 we are “empty nesters.”  Our oldest daughter, her husband and our only grandson live here in St. Johns. Our oldest son and his wife live in Livermore, California while our youngest son and his wife live in Nashville, Tennessee.

I love the outdoors, whether it is hiking in the mountains or fishing.  I also love REAL Chicago pizza and Chicago sports (particularly the Bears), although I have been known to pull for the Jags.
