What do you do at Calvary?

I get to encourage marriages and families to grow closer to one another and God at every stage, from premarital to strengthening marriages that are struggling, and in families, from our babies to college students.  I also get to serve as part of the teaching team in the main services.


How did you become a follower of Jesus?

I grew up in a Jewish family that believed in Jesus.  I grew up knowing about and believing in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, and celebrating the feasts of Israel, including Shabbat every Friday night and going through a Bar Mitzvah at age 13.  I was invited to attend a local church youth group in high school where I eventually went to Hume Lake and was called into ministry.  My youth pastor encouraged me to look at Biola University and through a series of connections there, I ended up at Calvary Church.
