My wife Joni and I have three adult children. We have been at Discovery Church for 12 years and were a part of the team that launched Discovery Southwest. I am passionate about being part of an authentic church that represents real people living in a real world while passionately pursuing a real God in their everyday lives.


I have been married to the fabulous Susan Willard since 1986 and we are the very proud parents of three kids, CJ, Hannah, and Natalie. We have attended Discovery Church East since 2004 and were part of the team that launched Discovery Church East in 2007.

I have been married to MaryAnn for 29 years and we have 3 children, Kyle, Kirk, and Karalyne. I have been involved at Discovery for 5 years. I am passionate about helping people discover and experience all that God has for them. I am passionate to see the church become what God intended her to be as seen in Acts 2:42-47. I am also passionate to see the Bible come alive for people in life-impacting ways.
