Welcome to my site, which hosts excerpts from my public ministry, along with reflections on how Scripture and scriptural theology – especially the Solas of the Reformation and the doctrines of grace – ought to raise our affections for Christ and His Word. I pray it may be of some help to you.

Brief Bio
I am a pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, in Sacramento, California. Previously, I studied at The Master’s Seminary (M.Div., 2007), as well as served with Children’s Hunger Fund and River City Grace Church.

With gratitude, I have been married to my wife, Jenn, since 2002. Outside of loving our young family – a son and two daughters – I enjoy cupping single-origin coffees and reading dead theologians, preferably at the same time.

I do trust that my aim in life and ministry is to so study, proclaim, and apply God’s Word that both my affections and those of my hearers are raised to God’s glory in our Lord Jesus Christ.

For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Cor 4:5-6)
