Sunrise over the Wheat Field

I was born in Saigon, South Vietnam, and left 2 days before the fall of Saigon in 1975. I arrived in San Jose and started attending SJCAC when the church first opened its doors in October 1975. The Lord called me to ministry during Urbana 1993 but it wasn't until 2017 that I finally answered His call to serve full time. I am married to my wife, Cheryl, and have 3 kids: Josiah, Esther, and Enoch. In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling and have a particular interest in all things airlines: planes, flight routes, lounges, terminals, etc. Yes, I love to collect points and frequent flyer miles!

I received a B.S. in Physiology and a Minor in Psychology from UC Davis, an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University, and earned 30 Bible Units from Tozer Seminary.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:25-34
