About Me

I am a husband, father, and pastor.  I married my high school sweetheart.  Donna and I have been married for over 30 years and have two adult married sons.

Since 1986 I have been the pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in San Jose, California. My Sunday sermons can be heard throughout Northern California on the radio program Wisdom for Living.  During most of my ministry I have been involved in starting new churches in Northern California through my work with my presbytery and denomination.    I have seen how God uses new churches to attract and impact people in ways that established churches often do not.  I am excited to be part of the process that God uses to expand and build up his kingdom.

I graduated from Westminster Seminary California where I earned my Master of Arts and Master of Divinity degrees.  In 2009 I received my Doctor of Ministry degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL.

I hope the ideas I share in this blog will be a blessing to you and your Christian walk.  Remember, knowledge is only useful if it is used!  Together, let’s apply all of God’s Word of all of life.
