One-Line Bio

Co-owner of Agapé Journeys Ministry


Born in Fort Dix, New Jersey as an army brat, we traveled alot and finally settled in San Pedro, California.

There our family was involved in the St. Peter's Episcopalian Church and I was involved/bored with what most churches were doing in those days.

A graduate of San Pedro High School (Go Pirates!) and San Diego State University, (Go Aztecs!), my seminary work was taken at the Claremont School of Theology, Ca. (Go figure!)

Blessed by and married to Joanne, with three grown children; Jason (with Daughter in Law Shannon) & Rebekah, they live elsewhere and we now live in Lancaster, Ca.

In utter amazement and wonder, it's been my honor to serve the following churches all in the state of California:

Youth Leader/Director:
La Mesa UMC, Hollywood 1st UMC and Rialto UMC

Cucamonga Community UMC, Bellflower 1st UMC, Christ UMC (Laguna Niguel), Culver-Palms UMC (Culver City) and Hope UMC (Rancho Bernardo), Orangethorpe UMC (Fullerton), Lancaster UMC


Supporting and Coaching pastors and local churches in Prayer, Small Groups and Effective Leadership along with Quiet Days, Retreats and Pilgrimages. Spirituality, sailing, golf, reading, personal growth, community action and the exploration of what God is all about. personal time includes: family, movies and naps. favorite movies: anything that makes me think. i.e. from "batman begins" to "the whale rider" to "the elephant man."
