At Crossline we consider anyone who is "owning" a piece of ministry as part of our staff team. Some of our staff are paid and some simply are volunteers serving and leading out of their own unique giftedness. The categories to the left are a breakdown of ministry areas. Please look around, find out a little more about us and even send us an email if you need information about our areas of ministry.
Senior Pastor | Email me
I have been married for over 26 years to my wife Donna. We have three children; Taylor, Kylie and Ashton. Each of my children loves Jesus and our family is a place of grace and encouragement. My wife is my life-partner and best friend.
Prior to being the founding senior pastor at Crossline, I served in pastoral ministry for 16 years both as an associate pastor and senior pastor. I began my career working in college ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ.
I did my undergraduate studies at San Jose State University and did my masterÕs and doctoral studies at Talbot Theological Seminary. I have been on the adjunct faculty of Biola University for over 20 years, teaching theology and biblical studies.
I love working out, watching ultimate fighting and old reruns of "The Sopranos".
I love our ethos; our commitment to keep the main thing, the main thing!
We are all about knowing Christ, making Him known, loving God, loving people and having a blast!

Executive Pastor | email me
I have been happily married to Kymbry for 17 years, we have 5 amazing children that we love to yell at, chase, and love on. When we are not with kids, we cherish time alone with each other. I love volleyball and hoops, lifting weights, movies and am a closet gamer. I helped launch Crossline as one of the founding pastors. Prior to being called into full time ministry, I ended my tenure as the Asia Pacific Regional Manager at QLogic Corporation. I did my undergraduate studies at Orange Coast College and at the Nazarene Bible College (AE) in Biblical studies.
I was combat promoted to Corporal/E4 in the USMC for actions in Operation Desert Storm.
