“My faith journey began during my college days at Northwestern University. But it wasn’t until my wife, Laura, and I attended a little church in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, where Dr. Alan Meenan was the Senior Pastor, that my faith truly took root. Fed by Dr. Meenan’s teaching and supported by a small group of strong Christian men, I experienced remarkable growth in my understanding and application of the Word of God. My wife and I began to lead a Sunday school class of middle schoolers which ultimately led me to a 25+ year ministry in Christian Education ranging from kindergarten age through 6th grade. I have had the opportunity to support a number of churches and para-church organizations with their media needs and am currently on the launch team of a church plant in Long Beach, California — Gospel City Church. I have been a member of the board of The Word Is Out for four years and it is one of my great pleasures to see its faithful ministry to the church in Africa, Asia and beyond grow by the grace of God.”
