Before SYM, I was a pastor at Saddleback Church. I started in 1995 and spent most of my time in youth ministry working for my hero and friend Doug Fields. After youth ministry, I left Saddleback and spent a year pursuing a church plant. I came back to Saddleback and served four years leading a couple different teams: regional campuses, ministry mobilization, local missions, and spiritual formation.
More importantly, I’m married to Misha and we have five boys: Max, Marc, Morgan, Miller, and Mac. Yea, they all start with the same letter, it’s a little corny. I love to read science fiction and I’m a mediocre gamer (hit me up if you play xbox or wow).
