I placed my faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior in 1971 during the Jesus Movement at a Calvary Chapel Maranatha concert in the Long Beach Auditorium in Southern California. Several high school friends had been reaching out to me, inviting me to concerts, Bible studies and various Christian events. These Christian brothers took me under their wing and discipled me in Christ. We began daily Bible studies at lunchtime at Downey High School and soon we were gathering in weekly home Bible studies. Since my conversion I felt a call to serve the Lord in ministry and looked for every opportunity to be used by Him. i.e. witnessing, leading worship, discipling new believers, etc. After serving the Lord over 10 years doing everything from Sunday school to convalescent ministry; my pastor (Pastor Jeff Johnson) invited me to join the pastoral staff at Calvary Chapel Downey where I served as an assistant pastor for over 20 years. After that I served the Lord for 7 years at Calvary Chapel Boise as an assistant pastor. In May of 2011 the Lord blessed the humble beginnings of our new Calvary Chapel Eagle church plant where I now serve as senior pastor.
