    I joined Dillman Church in October 2013. I am a disciple-maker who is passionate about worship, building community, teaching God's word, and equipping others to demonstrate God’s love to the world through service. There is nothing I want more than to see us become the “People of God on the Mission of God”.

    My wife and I were married in 1996 and have 2 children. I am committed to being the man, husband and father God desires me to be. Consequently, He has given me a heart for ministry to the family and calling men to authentic biblical manhood.

    It is a privilege and a blessing to partner and serve with this vital and growing congregation. Come join us on our journey as we seek Him together!

    After retiring from 32 years of teaching high school and 35 years of Navy active duty and reserve service, God has called me to use my skills and experience for His service. My lifelong passion has been working with kids, which has included summer camps, youth groups and other venues. I currently lead our 4th-6th grade BUDs (Boys Under Development) program and the Youth Sunday School small group.


    My wife Debbie and I have attended Dillman Church for over 10 years and enjoy being a part of this active community. We have both enjoyed serving in a variety of lay roles. In addition to the BUDs and Youth Sunday School, I also lead the worship team in our Sunday Morning Service and lead the Christian Education Ministry.

    I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to serve at Dillman Church. It is an exciting time of change for me, and I pray that God will lead us in His wisdom as we become “the People of God on the Mission of God".
