As of November 6, 2022, I became the new Pastor of Crossview Bible Church in Yucca Valley, CA.. I am very excited that God has called me into the best job in the whole world. I have had a strong calling from God on my life punctuated by many different types of ministry experience for over the years. I believe in the Royal Priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:9). I believe we are called not only to be deeply involved in a local church, but we are also called to live out our faith while being deeply involved in our local community as well. I believe each local fellowship of believers should be a “City on a hill” (Matt 5:14) shining brilliant light into a dark world. We should work to equip each other for the task of reaching our community for Christ while recognizing and encouraging the unique gifts God has given each of us for the task at hand. In my own life I have by God's mercy blurred the lines between church ministry, community service, business, and family life so that all is ministry serving God each day. My background is quite diverse in experience. I was raised by both parents in a strong Christian home in San Diego.
I have been happily married to my wife Lisa, the love of my life, for more than 30 years. We have 3 kids that all love the Lord and have been a heavenly blessing from God to us. Their names are Joshua, David, and Rachel. I spent 8 years working as a construction foreman in San Diego running crews of up to 23 men. Lisa and I have owned a construction company in Plumas County for 11 years and have also owned a window covering company for 22 years also in Plumas County. I was president of a local youth sports organization for 8 years. I coached American Football 21 years (head coach 18 years). I retired from coaching high school football last year. I believe pastoring is primarily loving people and every pastor should preach to his own heart first to avoid his own soul being lost and also to avoid living a life full of hypocrisy (1st Tim.1:19). I believe a pastor is called not only to equip the Body of Christ for ministry but to shepherd with deep love and commitment. If this type of servant leadership sounds good to you then I would like to invite you to pay us a visit at Crossview Bible Church on a Sunday morning. I would enjoy meeting you.
