I am a pastor and a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I serve as the Director of Counseling for The Renewing Life Center. Without a doubt, I believe I have the best job in the world. I get to spend hours every day working with a great staff and walking alongside incredible clients who are doing courageous work in their lives, marriages, and families. I did my undergraduate work in ministry at Hope International University and then became a pastor at Central Christian Church in Las Vegas, where I served for 30 years. My time at Central gave me the opportunity to work with some amazingly gifted leaders and learn a great deal about leadership, building teams, and caring for others. I found a tremendous passion for working with individuals and couples in crisis which led me to doing graduate work in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, to my licensure as a MFT, and to my role at The Renewing Life Center. I am also an Approved Supervisor with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and I find great satisfaction in mentoring new Marriage and Family Therapists who are entering the field. I have been married to my wife Christie for 29 years and we have four great children.
