When you feel unlovable, unworthy and unclean, when you think that no one can heal you: Remember, friend, God Can.
When you think that you are unforgivable for your guilt and your shame: Remember, friend, God Can.
When you think that all is hidden and no one can see within: Remember, friend, God Can.
And when you have reached the bottom and you think that no one can hear: Remember, my dear friend, God Can.
And when you think that no one can love the real person deep inside of you: Remember,my dear friend, God Does.
“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for out sins.” – 1 John 4:9-10
I am the Lead Pastor of Marin Bible Church (Bay Area), born and raised in Huntington Beach, Ca., and currently living in Novato, California. I am married to my best friend of 30 years - Dana - and have five adult children; and seven grand children. I have been a Teaching Pastor for over thirty years. I was privileged to study at Multnomah University (B.S. - 1988); Talbot School of Theology (M.Div. - 1991); Westminster Theological Seminary & Northwest Graduate School (D. Min. - 2003). I founded Vertical Living Ministries in 2008 with the goal of encouraging Christian Disciples and Leaders to be more intentionally Christ-Centered in how they live by bringing glory to God in nine key areas of life: (1) Intimacy with God, (2) marriage, (3) family, (4) friendship, (5) vocationally/ministry , (6) emotional and physical health, (7) stewardship of resources, (8) discipleship, and (9) mentoring.
