    Amy and I were married in 1990 and have four adult children, two daughters-in-law, two sons-in-law, four adorable granddaughters, and one precious grandson. I joined the staff at Mainstreet in 1995 and became the Lead Pastor in 2005. I love spending time with my wife and we’re trying to get used to not having kids’ activities and games to keep us on the go! I also love to play golf, although I rarely make time for it. After over two decades in ministry, my greatest joy is still seeing an individual life transformed by Christ and leading people where God is moving.
