Teaching Pastor
Screen Shot 2017-10-03 at 11.05.33 AMI am a dad, a husband, a friend, and a leader of a community of people who like myself seek to follow the life and way of Jesus in Up, In and Out relationships. I am always learning more of what it means to be human in each of these areas, and I try to share this honestly in a spirit of genuine discipleship.
I love serving the kingdom with my brothers and sisters in Church Without Shoes, Jesus-honoring pastors of local churches. I serve with amazing people, many with stories of incredibly, radically changed lives. Some have found something more real and loving in Jesus than in anything or anywhere else and that is their great story.
At New Life, you will see signs of the Hawaiian Islands all around New Life. The islands have been a place of personal rest, renewal, re-creation and special relationship. Here in the East Bay of San Francisco, aloha is not far out of place and much needed. So at our New Life campus you will find the Aloha Spirit of Jesus front and center. Aloha is a bit like Shalom in the Hebrew. It means more than hello and goodbye; it has a deep-seated blessing of love, compassion, kindness and many more things Jesus was all about!
My hope is in my messages, you can see the life of Jesus, at least meagerly if not at times, powerfully reflected and be encourage to draw closer to Him in trust and faith. I hope the messages encourage you as you walk through the joys and tribulations of every day life, and I hope they inspire you to try to be more like Jesus with each step.
Grace to you, and peace. Aloha.
