About Me: 

For me the CRC has always been a place of diversity. I grew up in an urban church plant while attending Eastern Christian in New Jersey. I got my BA in History at Calvin College and an M.Div from Calvin Seminary. After Calvin I worked with Christian Reformed World Missions in the Dominican Republic. 

After the DR I took a call to the Living Stones CRC in Sacramento CA and have been busy with my buddy Kevin Adams and others helping to plant churches, do a Leadership Development Network and wreak as much havoc as I can in Classis Central CA.  I've was a member of the Board of Home Missions for almost ten years.


I like reading, thinking and blogging. I love visiting the amazing national parks of California with my family. 

I'm passionate about urban ministry, church planting, gospel and culture issues.
