At 22, I felt a call to serve God in full-time ministry. My dream was to help people and change the world. I was licensed and ordained by Shepherd of the Hills Church. I started 3 Saddleback daughter churches to reach out to my friends who didn’t attend church. I became a pastor of pastors with the EFCA West and recently joined the pastoral staff at Saddleback Church to coach and mentor our campus pastors locally and internationally.
Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly, not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God ,,, Lead them by your own good example. ~ 1 Peter 5: 1-5
I was very shy growing up and never dreamed I'd become a public speaker. I didn't think anybody would listen to me but my mom assured me they would if I had something to say. God gave me a burning desire to teach his Word and helped me overcome my fear of public speaking. I've been blessed to spieak at some of the top churches, colleges, graduate schools and conferences in the country.
"People's number one fear is public speaking, number two is death. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy." ~ Jerry Seinfeld
