I grew up in a Catholic home and went to Parochial school for twelve years. As a family, we really only went to church together on Easter and Christmas Eve.
I am currently a Police Detective with an agency in Southern California and have been so for over twenty years. It wasn’t until I had thirteen years on the job that I first came to know the Lord and what a difference it has made in my career and family life.
I am currently a robbery/Homicide Detective with a small police department in Southern California. I have been in Law Enforcement for 25 years.
I grew up in Bakersfield, where my parents were the pastors of a small rural church. I gave my life to Christ at an early age, was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. When I was a teenager, we moved to Orange County where we continued to attend a Pentecostal Church.
My spiritual journey began before I was seven years old. My father and mother were married for several years before my sister was born. I came two years after that.
I grew up in a very loving family. I grew up as a Catholic but only went to church on holidays. I made my first holy communion but I did not have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We never studied the bible and I never read it.
For part of my childhood life, I grew up in the City of Compton, California. I am the second to the youngest of eight children. Our house was always busy with all of us kids going from one sporting event to another.
I grew up on the west side of Los Angeles and graduated from Venice High School in 1962. I played football and baseball in high school, making All-League in football.
Around Easter of 1980, I gave my life to Jesus Christ but not much changed until two years later. I became a youth pastor intern and thought I was God’s gift to preaching. I found out the hard way that I had a lot of growing to do but He definitely called me to preach.
I grew up in Los Angeles CA. My godparents invited me to a small church in Huntington Park and there I gave my life to the Lord on September 1st, 2001 at the age of seventeen. The next day I felt like a new person and my eyes felt like they were washed with fresh cold water.
