Pastor of Teaching
I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I am passionate about shepherding His church as an outpost of the Kingdom of Heaven. I consider it an honor to be called to equip the saints for the work of ministry and it is my goal to one day say about this church, "I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another." (Romans 15:14)
I come to Del Cerro Baptist via Littlerock Community Fellowship in Olympia, WA. Before that, I received my own equipping for ministry at Southern Seminary and Clifton Baptist Church in Louisville, KY. My wife Susan and I have been happily married since 2003. We have 4 kids, Elias, Jillian, Georgia, and Luke.
Pastor of Discipleship and Worship
I am a Southern California native born and raised in Huntington Beach, CA. I grew up in the church but it wasn't until my time at Biola University that I began to sense God calling me into full-time ministry. I love to teach and preach the Bible, to lead the church in song, and to train God's people to do His work. My goal is to work with the energy God provides to present everyone mature in Christ (Colossians 1:28-29).
I come to Del Cerro Baptist Church via Orange Villa Bible Church in Orange, CA. I received an M. Div from Talbot School of Theology. I married Sarah in 2014 and the Lord has blessed with two children (so far), Joelle and Zephaniah.
Pastor of Youth and Outreach
I am a San Diego native who graduated from San Diego State University. It was during my time at SDSU that God really changed my life and showed me how amazing the Gospel is. Since then I have been passionate about raising up young men and women to know and love God, know his Word, and give their lives to the building of Christ's Kingdom all over the world. After college I served overseas in East Asia for 3 years and had an amazing time sharing the Gospel with college students and seeing God move in powerful ways. I met my wife Sara while working overseas and now we are both doing college and youth ministry in San Diego. I am currently working on my masters in Biblical Counceling from Southern Seminary.
