I came to know Christ following a Young Life meeting my senior year in high school. My excitement to follow Christ resulted in 17 years on Young Life staff, 4 of those years spend in seminary. I then began a “field education” course that included 22 years in the business world. During that season I was around and involved with the growth of Watermark. I served in various capacities including the office of elder. My move to staff was the nudging of the Spirit of God, encouragement of community, and a desire to pursue my first Love.
I am married to Susan in 1980 and we have 2 married children, and 4 granddaughters. Yes, I met Susan in my Young Life club and no we didn’t date until she was in college!
