In the summer of 2013 I followed God’s leading and left a worship position I had filled for 17 years in order to join the team at Forest Grove Community Church to provide leadership to our Worship Ministries. I’m excited about the opportunity to come alongside people as we explore what a life of worship can look like. My wife Christine and I have two children Seth and Emmy. We enjoy going for walks as a family, spending hours at playgrounds – and Seth and Emmy have fallen in love with the Forestry Farm. I love to travel and immerse myself in other cultures – including a number of opportunities to lead short term mission teams. I loved the time I have spent in Egypt and South Africa, but I have a special place in my heart for the people of Costa Rica.
