Pastor’s Greeting


Shalom! It is my joy and privilege to share with every person that they have been welcomed into the family and reign of God through trusting in what Jesus Christ has accomplished with his life, death, and victory on the Cross. You are loved and belong because of what Jesus did for you!

I am a graduate of the Cross-Cultural Ministry Center at Concordia University Irvine where I obtained my Masters of Theology. I am married to a feisty woman and have three, equally feisty, children. I am an avid cyclist, board game player, and enjoy back packing, hiking, woodworking, and brewing.

Changing times for Shepherd of the Valley means OPPORTUNITY for YOU!
While uncertain and change are always part of human life, ultimately the future is not uncertain.
While we all like to “go our own way,” and want to feel like we can do life “our way,” and are in control, we may forget that we are vulnerable and fragile, and that we do often get ourselves lost in the thorny thickets of life’s struggles and difficulties.
Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia! These words begin and end our worship on each of the seven Sundays of Easter as an affirmation of the fact that Easter is not a day, it is a seven week long season that celebrates the resurrection of our Lord.
