Associate Pastor of Outreach
I have been a Christ follower from the age of 33. I was depressed, confused, and running down the wrong road when everything changed. I received the Lord Jesus into my life. I can understand those who have no affiliation with religion, as I grew up outside the “church”. Yet the “church” is not what being a follower of Jesus is, it is all about a relationship and not religion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, God has ignited a passion in my heart to reach out to those who are in need spiritually. The calling that God has placed in my life is for those who are searching, seeking and hurting.
I have eight children and have been married for 20 years. My family and I have lived in the Crystal Lake area over 15 years and began attending Real Life Church in 2007. In 2010 I became a Local Minister at Real Life Church of the Nazarene. Then in 2012 I received my District Minister License for the Chicago Central District and became an Associate Pastor at Real Life Church of the Nazarene.
Many people confuse religion with faith. I want to reach out to those who are lost, come alongside of them on the road they are on and show them the path that leads to a life altering change into the presence of God.
