profile-pic-2016-small_edited-1Originally from Montana, I received my undergraduate degree from The Master’s College (Santa Clarita, CA) and my M.Div. and Ph.D. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, KY). I previously served as the managing editor for The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry and adjunct professor of theology for Southern Seminary.

I currently serve as an associate pastor at Grace Bible Fellowship of Silicon Valley and professor of theology at Cornerstone Seminary in Vallejo, California.

My wife and I have been blessed with three delightful children, and we love exploring the outdoors, playing sports, and reading good books. When not spending time with my family, I can be found running or cycling around the San Francisco Bay Area.
