I am constantly amazed by the life that I have. I live in Sherman Oaks, CA with my wife and four kids, Jayelle – 19, and Jonathan – 16, Jakeob – 12, and Brooklyn – 9. Traci and I have been married for twenty five years, and are becoming better friends with every passing year. We met in college, and she was dumb enough to marry me, which I am very grateful for.
We moved to Los Angeles so that Traci could get her Master’s at USC in Violin Performance. We became Christians shortly after moving here in 1993. We both worked as professional musicians until 2000, when we were given the opportunity to go into the ministry full time. We now serve the Turning Point Church (www.turningpointla.org) working with families and the music ministry. It is an incredible church and God keeps teaching us new things every year.
I love playing music and still play every chance I get. Most of my gigs are salsa and Latin music, which is so much fun.
My latest passion is our relationship with the International Church of Christ in San Salvador, El Salvador. I have had the privilege of taking mission teams there once or twice a year since November 2009, and it changed my life. We truly feel a partnership with the church there, and we love to do whatever we can to help them spread the love of Jesus in an incredibly dark and challenging country. My favorite program is the Becas Program which is currently helping five college students attend college and break the cycle of poverty in their families. I also have gotten to spend a lot of time with many of church leaders throughout Central America, and am incredibly grateful for all I have learned from them.
I really do have the greatest job in the world, and can’t imagine doing anything else. I love hanging with my family. I have incredible friends. Life is good.
