Meet the Team
Hi, I'm the Pastor of NUMA CHURCH. I'm married to Jeni and have two kids: Josie + Josiah. I love music (U2, Brian Doerksen, Delirious), baseball (Dodgers), playing basketball (they call me "two-shot"), and being around people. I'm inspired, most of all, by God's love and truth and want to be a part of a community that wants to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 3:18)
God loves justice. My deepest hope is that our church will continue to lean into a posture of learning, co-creating, and joining God in the work He has been doing for generations."Disciples making disciples" has always been the descriptive measure of our church community, and my role is to create opportunities to expand our capacity to include others.
There’s a song that goes “life is short; I wanna live it well.” We try—struggling and even questioning at times—to practically trust that Jesus really is the way. As we do, we’re realizing that this kind of life is characterized primarily by the quality of our relationships with one another.
Director of Kid NUMA
I am a husband, father, Liverpool fan, pizzaholic, self-proclaimed comedian, Tolkien understudy, dungeon master, and ultimately a son. I have a deep love for Asian American communities and the experience of the immigrant settling and growing up in America. Numa is my home and I am excited to teach and walk with the future generation growing up around us.
Stewardship is an ethic called forth to Christ followers. I serve the church by overseeing the finances. My role is to provide a layer of accountability for the financial well being of Numa.
NUMA is a community of believers. Being a part of this community has made major contributions to the person that I am today. I look back at the past 9 years with NUMA and we’ve gone through big and small life changes, challenges, celebrations, heartaches, and happiness together while holding our eyes on Jesus through it all. It is my privilege to be able to serve the people here. But more than often, I am served by the abundance of grace demonstrated through the people of NUMA.
