July 2015 marked my 10th year at Temple Baptist. As I look back over the 10 years, it is evident that God’s presence has been consistently with us. He has fulfilled His promises to give us rest from our enemies, to convict and transform us of sin, to equip us to do His Kingdom work, to transform us more into the image of Jesus Christ, to bring the nations to us and us to the nations, to give us a love for our neighbors and a love for our enemies, and to manifest His presence among us for His glory.
   Over the last few years, I have witnessed a noticeable increase in God’s manifested presence with us. This has resulted in personal and corporate holiness, an increase in spiritual growth and an increase in the manifestation of His gifts being active at our gatherings and in our people’s home, work and social places. His healing presence is among us.
   I was not raised to be a follower of Jesus. Yet, God though His mercy revealed Himself to me during my sophomore year at college. I became a follower of Jesus Christ in December 1982. He made Himself known to me. He offered me eternal life through Jesus if I put my faith in Him. Right then, I made a commitment to follow Him every day of my life. Each day since, He has led me.
   I married to Wendy (July, 1987), and we have one daughter. We do a lot together as a family. For stress relief and exercise, I enjoy riding my bike throughout the streets of San Francisco, Marin, and the South Peninsula.
   If you are looking for a place where the Supreme Being of the universe is making Himself known, I invite you to come and visit us.

I can’t believe it has been over 12 years since I first experienced God calling me to San Francisco.  It is such a blessing and a lot of fun to be a part of what God is doing here at Temple Baptist Church.  My heart is to walk alongside people to encourage them to passionately pursue God and to live their destiny.  
Some other quick things about me—I love spending time with my family.  I have been married to my amazing wife Meghan since 2009 and have two wonderful daughters—Riyah (6) and Shalom (2).  We love San Francisco and love being part of what God is doing in the city.  We believe there is no better place for us to raise our children than in San Francisco and at Temple Baptist Church.
I also enjoy biking, awesome coffee, reading, traveling, and connecting with people over food.  I am a partial owner of the Green Bay Packers and am currently working towards completing a Doctor of Ministry degree at United Theological Seminary. We would love for you to come and be a part of what God is doing at Temple Baptist Church.
