A unique background combining a successful corporate career, business ownership, and for the past 10 years called to ministry leadership. I heard God's calling to transition from a life focused on worldly success to a life of significance in ministry serving others. My life purpose is to connect the unconnected to Christ, inspire people to grow in their faith, and develop servant leaders to positively impact our churches and surrounding communities to ultimately expand the kingdom

Significant Accomplishments

Mariners Church

Re-ignited the Men's Ministry at Mariners Church through meaningful men's connection events; assembled a strong men's servant leadership team; and inspired men into weekly life groups. The result was rapid growth in our attendance at events from the same 75 men to over 400 in a 2-year span. The fruit from this growth was the transformation of men from being affiliated with the church to activated. These new spiritual leaders are now leading outreach projects in our community

Saddleback Church

In my role on the main Saddleback campus I recruited, trained, and lead a team of 12 bible study facilitators for our weekly studies. This leadership team under my direction tripled enrollment growth and numbers of men's groups in 2 years. This was our leadership track that generated dozens of new leaders that went on to other significant ministry leadership roles.
