God changes the world through ordinary people who are filled with the Holy Spirit, alive in the gospel, and convinced of the victory of Jesus.” ~ JS

I'm from the Philippines but grew up in Northern California. Pia and I have been happily married for 15 years, and we have three sons, Ethan, William, and Jackson.

I am a passionate servant leader with the skills, patience, and experience to guide people to join God’s kingdom movement. This results in healthy, growing, and strategic action in the church. Ministry is a holy calling from God. Though it will have challenges, it is part of the call and cost of following Jesus. I use God’s word and the power of the Holy Spirit to handle ministry challenges, resulting in a healthier body of Christ. I possess the classic pastoral skillset of preaching, teaching, counseling, and leadership development. I am committed to personal development through spiritual disciplines and approach discipleship as the whole of the Christian life. My desire is to make disciples and help plant churches for this is the mission Jesus entrusted us to do.
