I grew up in Washington State and gave my heart to the Lord at a young age and have served him ever since. I met and married my life-partner, Darla, in Indiana. We have three lovely daughters, Emily, Erica, and Melanie, who have all attended Fairview Christian School. I studied music at Azusa Pacific and Seattle Pacific where I earned my degree. I also studied at the Anderson University School of Theology. I’ve had the privilege of leading worship for over 19 years. Music feeds my soul and worshiping with others is my favorite part of the week. I like the verse where Jesus said, “Make your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and will praise your Father in heaven.” (Matt. 5:16) My hobbies are gardening and keeping chickens and baking.
