I was born in Torrance, California (CA) in 1973. Throughout my childhood I grew up moving to many places within Southern CA. On occasion I would get introduced to the concept of G-d and His Son, Jesus. At those times, I never understood anything. It wasn't until February 19, 1993, that I came to a saving knowledge of G-d, through Jesus, the Messiah. I have been a student of Him and His Word since then. I met my wife through a home Bible study fellowship. We married in 1996 and started a family almost immediately. We have 3 kids (2 sons and a daughter in the middle). We started our lives in CA, but moved to Arizona (AZ) in April 2004. We have been attending Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek since. I enjoy studying G-d's Word and helping others grow in their faith and knowledge of the L-RD.
