Hermiston Assembly of God pastor
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
Sheri and I moved to Hermiston over 23 years ago in December of 1995 at the end of our term as missionaries in the Philippines, establishing and launching a Bible College. We moved here feeling deeply impressed to volunteer and serve the local pastor which happened to be of the Hermiston Assembly. Three years later we became the lead pastors. This past January makes 20 years as the lead pastors for us (1999-2019).
