I enjoy being an "everyday" Christian, which means that I try to live my life according to strong Christian values (putting my family first, serving others, being kind to people, giving, studying the bible, serving as a lay pastor at my church, leading ministries for men and intercessory prayer). Every day I try to "walk the talk", but recognize that I am far from perfect and often times make mistakes - this is exactly why I rely heavily on the grace, forgiveness and love of God!
My goal is to demonstrate these values in my everyday life as a husband, father and businessman to show that even in this current anti-God culture (especially here in northern California!), it's okay to be a modern Christian who enjoys doing everyday things, like: hanging out with family and friends, listening to contemporary music, enjoying great food, a glass (or two;)) of fine wine and a nice cigar!!
Our passions are oftentimes a sign from God that reveal the gifts He gave us to enjoy in our everyday lives and to share with those around us. My passions are spending time with my wife and three adult children, visiting with family and friends, church ministry, woodworking, cooking, wine collecting, enjoying God’s creation in the great outdoors (camping, fishing and hunting), experiencing different cultures through international travel and listening to awesome music, including Christian, jazz and - of course - classic rock!!!
