I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, but moved to DFW in 2013. A Christian by name, I was looking for peace, security, value, and joy in all the wrong places. I was chasing the American dream and thought I could add church to it later. It wasn’t until I got an invitation, specifically to get to know this God I said I already believed in, did things change. I showed up to Equipped Disciple, and it was through that program that I learned how to read my bible, how to pray, and how to have a relationship with other believers. The next invitation forced me to decide if I wanted to go all in with who Jesus said He was and what He was calling me to. Next thing I know, I began saying yes to any invitation that would put me with other believers, challenge my faith, and help me to learn more about who my God is.
In 2017 I said yes to an invitation to jump on staff through Watermark’s institute program. Now I get to serve our Plano members by helping inspire and invite them to take part in the amazing story God is writing through out Collin County. I am married to the most amazing girl in the world, Stacy Thorpe, and have a baby girl named Charley Faye. Following Christ has been the best invitation I have ever said yes to and I strongly encourage everyone else to do the same.
