We are a family of imperfect people who don't always get it right, but we love Jesus. We love to laugh, we love to connect, and we love to cultivate relationships. Our passion is to live authentically, loving and serving God's creation.

We met in 2006 when we moved to Redding to attend Simpson University. We got married in 2012, and life together has been an insane rollercoaster of highs and lows. Our two precious children, Sean (who is in heaven) and Rafi, are a couple of energetic and crazy characters who bring us great joy.

We joined Vineyard City Church in 2010, spending two years at a distance while serving in Indonesia, and have been a part of this incredible community ever since.

What we love most about this congregation, is that it really is a family. A genuine and generous family full of real people living real life together, while learning how to follow Jesus. To us, this is home.

You can catch us exploring outdoors, road tripping, trying to make things grow, creating, and cooking.
