Pastoroffice: 503-452-9375

Paulette and I found a home at Greater Portland over 25 years ago. After 14 years of enjoying the fellowship and the nurture of this church, I was privileged to become a part of the pastoral team, and then in 2010 the elders entrusted me with the role of Lead Pastor. As of 2018, I am grateful to turn over the reigns of leadership to Jay Gjurgevich and continue serving the GPBC community as an associate pastor. I continue to be impressed by what our Lord Jesus has done in and through this church over the years and am both privileged and delighted to be a part of the health and unity we are enjoying.

One of my jobs is to keep GPBC centered on Jesus by my participation on the preaching guild. I long for people to be impressed with Him each Sunday in whatever Scripture text we are exploring. In the midst of a growing diversity in our congregation, Jesus has kept us unified as we had made Him the main thing. Amazingly, all of our differences and distinctions have become secondary.

Paulette and I are the proud parents of four men and the doting grandparents of 14 grandchildren. I enjoy long, twisty motorcycle rides, slow-smoking large slabs of meat, baking artisan bread, and I’m learning to play golf as an exercise in humility.
