I am a Filipino-American born in the Philippines but raised in Pasadena, California. I now reside in Arcadia and work for the County of Los Angeles in the Information Technology field. My wife Marnie and I met in Sunday School and have been married since 1993. We eventually found “HOPE” in 2004 and experienced a transformation of our beliefs about the church community and the people it serves. I have been on the leadership board at Hope since 2017 and my wife has served in different roles at the church. Serving others has been a big part of our lives and we have been involved in various ministries at the church over the years. Our passion is for married couples and mentoring them to grow in their faith in Christ. We have two children Meliza and Joshua who both have a love for music. My hobbies include traveling, food tripping, movies, bowling, hanging out with friends/family while food tripping. Hope is a unique community of believers from all backgrounds and walks of life. Our community commits to love and embrace the diversity and unity we can experience as the body of Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit.
