I have been married to Pam for 28 years and, as Pam says, we have known each other for 20 years. We have four children – Keenan (20), Noah (18), Daniel (17) and Eliza (16). Daniel and Eliza were adopted when they were 2 and 1 years old. I have been the Lead Pastor of Cold Springs Church, Placerville CA, since 1998 – a church passionate about raising up compassionate followers of Jesus Christ to be risk-takers for God.
I have also been a Leadership Coach for the past 12 years working with ministry leaders throughout the USA, Australia and Ethiopia to help them overcome the obstacles they face and seize the opportunities in their lives and ministries. In my free time I try to keep up with my endurance running wife by riding mountain bikes and running half the distance she does in the same amount of time. I dream of having another BMW GS dual sport motorcycle to find dirt roads to explore. I graduated from Oregon State University with a BA and BS in Business Management, from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School with a Masters of Divinity and am currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Coaching from Western Seminary.
