I became a christian in my twenties after spending my younger life in the underground music scene in Los Angeles as a DJ. I’ve shared my story and the message of God’s love all over the country. Before becoming the Lead pastor of Active Church I served as a teaching pastor at RockHarbor Church & Eastside Christian Church in Orange County, California. I earned my undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies, my Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary and my Doctorate from Azusa Pacific University. I’ve been an adjunct professor at Hope International University and a founding member for the Center of Leadership at the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics of Cal State Fullerton in Fullerton, California. I was featured by Christian Standard Magazine as one of the top 40 Christian leaders under 40. I am married to my partner in life and ministry, Julia, and I’m thrilled to be the father of three incredible children, daughters Semeia and Asha, and son Zion.
