Thanks for checking out our website. I trust that as you have been surfing around that you have been able to get a clear sense of what we are all about. As Victory's pastor, it has been my joy and privilege to serve this amazing church family for 15 years, and look forward to every opportunity we have together to share our faith. Come learn and have your faith fed and strengthened with the meat of the Word during one of our weekly services.
My History: I grew up in a moralistic non-religious home as the oldest of four kids with wonderful parents. In the 1980s I became highly influenced by my peers with heavy metal music (much of it overtly satanic), which naturally led to alcohol, drugs and other forms of immorality. These passions of the flesh led to a highly destructive, selfish and hopelessly depraved lifestyle. But God in His mercy stepped in and "rescued me from the domain of darkness and transferred me to the kingdom of His beloved Son" Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:13), three weeks before my 20th birthday.
In time, God gave me a desire to help teens steer clear of the world's den of sin through repentance of sin and faith alone in Jesus Christ, and faithful obedience to God's Word. This led to four years of Bible college to prepare me for pastoral ministry, beginning in 1989.
I love to teach, preach and provide biblicalcounsel to those in need. My passion is to see God continue to raise up men and women of faith who gratefully submit themselves to the authority of God's Word for His glory, by being discipled, making disciples and discipling one another (Matthew 28:18-20).
