And he has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists, and some with grace to be pastors, and some with grace to be teachers. And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-12 TPT

The Lord blessed me when He called me to pastor the TBC family in July 2005. I grew up in the Castro Valley, CA (East Bay) in a loving but troubled family. One by one, God called each member of my family into a personal relationship with Him. For me, it was my sophomore year at college. At that moment, I made a commitment to follow Him every day of my life. What a Journey it has been!
 
Wendy and I married in July 1987. We have one daughter who attends Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA..
 
I enjoy biking throughout San Francisco, Marin, and the South Peninsula. Wendy and I enjoy nature and city walks, and finding great places to eat.

I grew up in Wisconsin and moved to San Francisco after a clear call from God in 2006.  I have been at Temple Baptist Church working in different capacities since then and it has been a blast.  The biggest thing on my heart is for people to come to know God, to abide in His love, and to live their destiny.
 
Some quick things about me—I love spending time with my family. I have been married to my amazing wife Meghan since 2009 and we have two wonderful daughters—Riyah (6) and Shalom (2). We are love what God is doing in our city and 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, coffee, reading, traveling, and connecting with people over food. I am a passionate partial owner of the Green Bay Packers and am in the final stages of completing a Doctor of Ministry degree at United Theological Seminary.

When God called me into worship ministry at TBC He showed me that I was stepping into the destiny he had prepared for me since I was a young child. This was an important revelation because up to that point I was totally unaware that this was part of His plan for me! And in His great kindness, He planted me and my family in the most welcoming, supportive, and loving church community we could have imagined. It is an honor to be entrusted with leading God’s people in worship at TBC and I look forward to more of what God has in store!
 
I was raised in Upland, California and met Ryan while attending Westmont College in Santa Barbara. We married in 1999 and moved to San Francisco in 2007. We have two daughters Kathleen (6) and Carolyn (2). In my free time (haha!) I love to read, garden, cook, and spend time with friends and family.

Hello, my name is Gaelle.  I am an immigrant and Haitian-American woman who grew up in a Housing Development. I was not expected to succeed in anything.  My own high school counselor told me I was not qualified to get into college. Two words that have forever transformed my life was, “But God”. I am a God-fearing woman and because of this I am able to live in the fruition of God’s faithfulness.

I graduated with a degree in Youth Ministry from Evangel University and have begun to fulfill the call on my life to do youth ministry.  I love walking alongside students and giving them Christ centered guidance as they grow in Him. I am both blessed and honored to have the opportunity to serve in the TBC community and am I looking forward to how God will minister to and through me!
