I gave my life to Christ in 1997 and was baptized at El Camino Church in Sunnyvale. I then started to attend services at hope in 2000 and really enjoyed the church. Mike Knight (pastor) was doing a series on acceptance and I really felt loved by God and hope. Soon after attending hope I joined the youth ministry as a volunteer helper and really connected with the kids. God has blessed me with a heart for youth ministry. I have been the volunteer Team Leader for five years and have been involved with youth ministry for 8+ years now. I really feel called to this ministry, love the Lord, and have a passion to love youth. I am a professional carpenter by day and love rocking out to Heavy Music. I enjoy spending time with my family, my beautiful wife Deahna (Children's Director) and beautiful little cutie daughter Fiona.
