"I have joyfully been at Bethel Grace since September 2017 where I initially just came to be the interim. The Lord had the bigger plan for Barb and I, and we found a wonderful new home with the family of Bethel Grace. I was blessed to be the Minister of Worship at Bethany Church in Long Beach for over 40 years, and thought as I left it was the end of what I so passionately loved doing. God always delights in surprising us!!! I received my bachelors of music, and minor in Bible at Biola University and served in two churches part-time before being called to Bethany.
"Barb and I are blessed with two adult children, Greg, who is currently in Africa and involved with environmental work in marine science. Our daughter, Lara, is married and she and her husband, Jesse, live in Lakewood just three streets away from us. The joy of our lives is being grandparents to their two daughters, Adele (8) and Zoe (5).
"Barb and I enjoy working together with Jostens part-time on the college and university campuses. We also like traveling, working on home projects, and serving people. I love chocolate and baking cookies to give to others. I also love music, praise and worship, and the blessing of challenging and seeing people who are passionate in praising and worshiping the Lord Jesus who is so worthy of all we can give to Him."
