    Senior Pastor


    Married to the most incredible woman, Angela, on March 5, 1994

    Blessed with 2 kids, Rachel and Josiah and a son-in-law, Kurt. (Since January 2018 been empty-nesters and loving it!)


    Completed Master of Divinity in May ’08 from Phoenix Seminary


    • Born October 4, 1971 in Orange County, California. 
    • Became a Christian at the age of 4. Grew up in So. Cal. And attended First Evangelical Free Church in Fullerton, Ca. It was Charles Swindoll’s church and where I was deeply impacted for life by the leaders and youth of the ministry there. 
    • Joined the Marine Corps in summer of 1989. 
    • Served in Desert Shield & Desert Storm. 
    • I’ve traveled to more than 13 different countries. 

    I met Angela in our youth group at church but didn’t start dating until the end of my term in the Marines. Soon after we were married we moved to Auckland, New Zealand to take up a youth pastor position at Papatoetoe Baptist Church. 

    We served for 3 years there and had our daughter Rachel there as well. 

    It was also in New Zealand that I picked up the love of rugby. 

    Following our time in New Zealand we moved to Phoenix, Arizona and I took up an associate pastors position at New Life Community Church where I served for 8 years. And it was during that time that we had our son Josiah.

    Then on October 31, 2007 we moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to take on the role of senior pastor with the amazing people of Summit Ridge Church. I am so proud of them and love them dearly. 

    I can’t wait to keep watching what God is doing with this church. We are here to stay.

    Youth Director


    Married to Haylee in June 27, 2015.


    I was born and raised in Southern Arizona in a dusty little town called Tucson. My parents were both heavily involved in ministry church since I could remember, and when I was a ripe old age of 13, I fully committed my existence to the calling God had designed for my life. I began scrubbing toilets at a camp, and moved up to counselor, head counselor, and after seven years of serving, I retired from camp with the position of assistant program coordinator. Towards the end of my time at Prescott Pines Camp, I met Pastor John, and within a year, I began serving at Summit Ridge Church in December of 2012 as the youth intern. Since then, God has grown the Youth Ministry in incredible ways, blessing us with the best group of leaders and students in the world. Without a doubt, God is doing incredible things at Summit Ridge Church, and I am so excited to be able to witness it and be used by Him.
