I am a pastor who has served the local church for 50 years, beginning at age 20. I attended South Pasadena CA schools, UCLA and Fuller Seminary. I have served as Pastor to Students, Associate Pastor and, for most of those years, as Pastor/Head of Staff in Presbyterian congregations. I have served churches primarily in California, but also in Nebraska and Ohio.



I am married to Susan Denning, a school teacher. We have one son, David, who is in law enforcement. I like to read, follow sports, work puzzles and play jazz piano.
