Turning Point Church really has been a dream that has been playing out in the back of our minds and hearts for years. We've been very fortunate to be a part of some great life giving churches during our lives while also having the chance to serve with some incredible leaders. It’s out of those experiences and relationships that we began to ask, ‘why couldn't we do that?’ It’s with that question where God began to put the desire in us and the dream to help build a church that was life giving.
For the past 27 years of ministry we have been involved in various roles of serving within the local church and overseas in Latin America. My role at Turning Point is to provide overall vision and direction to the mission of our church. I also serve as the primary communicator during our weekend services. I've been married to my beautiful wife, Keisa for 28 years and we have four great kids; Aaron, Ellie, Christian and Karinna. For fun I like to hang out with my kids, watch sports, watch movies, read, and run. Of course college football rules and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are my team.
