In September of 1990, I married my beautiful wife (who was saved at the age of 12), Anita Sweet. On October 12, 1995, I prayed and received Christ as my Savior. That Sunday I was baptized. After I was saved and baptized God blessed our marriage and in 1996 He gave us our beautiful daughter Alyse and our wonderful sons; Michael in 1998, and Connor in 2001, then in 2005 He gave us our beautiful daughter Emily.
My goal as Pastor of Calvary Chapel is to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ. We want to utilize every available biblical means, and we want to disciple and train every member to participate in accomplishing our church's purpose. The purpose of the church is summed up in the commission Christ gave His disciples just before He ascended to Heaven: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen: (Matthew 28:18-20).
