My Motivation

It is incredible to see many people who come to The Bridge for the first time and eventually become followers of Jesus. I love being a part of a community where Jesus is changing lives.

My Background

I worked for 20 years in the stock and options market business. During that time, my wife Karen and I raised our three children, Pamela, Tommy, and Nathan at The Bridge. I joined staff in 2007.

My Spiritual Journey

I grew up with Christian parents and I accepted Christ when I was 10 years old. I had a friend named Tom who challenged me to have a greater impact for Christ in the "second half" of my life.

One More Thing

For my first full-time job, I worked for a construction company. We poured concrete walls, as well as basement and garage floors.
