I was saved as a young boy after growing up in a happy home that talked about Jesus all the time. My Dad has been a pastor all my life and while growing up in rural Oklahoma being a pastor was all I ever really wanted to do. After starting college I met and married Brooke, dropped out of college, had our children Bailey and Britton, and became the pastor of a rural church in Oklahoma within a 4 year span.
Brooke and I first felt the call to church planting in 2003 and planted a church in Portland, Oregon in 2004. We made Phoenix our home in 2011 and started Valley Life Church January 8, 2012 in a movie theater. From day one Valley Life was planted as a disciple making, church planting church. We have seen hundreds of people baptized and 7 churches planted since we started, and by God’s grace we will see many many more of both.
