We met when I was a Freshman and Shelley was a Sophomore at Pacific Christian College. After dating for nearly 4 years we were married at Central Christian Church in Mesa, AZ. We have been married for 21 years and have spent nearly all of those in ministry in Arizona. It has been an incredible journey and we are excited to see what the next 21 years brings.
