Pastor of Congregational Life
and Marriage Ministry
I've been a pastor at Bethany since 2004. My main area of ministry is marriage—premarital and pre-engagement counseling, weddings, marriage small groups, and a mentoring program. I also supervise age- and gender-based ministries—Children's, Youth, College, Career, Women’s, Men’s, Deaf, and Senior's ministries.
I grew up in Burien and married my high school sweetheart, Mary, in 1985. We have two adult-age children, Zooey and Chandra.
In 2015, during my sabbatical, I took a 40-day Harley ride out to the east coast and back to Seattle.
