Associate Pastor

I am so thankful to God “who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).  I know that it is only “by grace that you are saved through faith and that not of yourselves.” So, I experience even greater appreciation to my God as I reflect upon His sovereignty in so orchestrating my life, that I was able to respond in faith to the Gospel of Jesus Christ after growing up in a Baptist church in Southern California. In 1989, I was blessed to take as my bride, Beth. We graduated together from the Master’s College in 1990. God allowed me to serve in Christian Education within a Christian School for 13 years. Within that time, the church called me on as their Junior High Pastor and I also had oversight of our mission’s expansions and short-term trips. In 2004, God called me to serve as Associate Pastor at Meridian First Baptist Church. We have come to love God and His people more and more as we serve in Idaho. We have enjoyed every season of raising our 3 children and now enjoy their spouses and our grandchildren. My wife and I enjoy investing in the flock here at MFBC by “proclaiming to the next generation the mighty works of God.” We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our Savior, Jesus Christ.  And… we’d love to enjoy a cup of good coffee with you soon.
