Worship & Creative Arts Pastor
I joined Real Life in 2015 and I have been given the awesome opportunity to lead the creative arts team. That includes all kinds of fun stuff like partnering with our musicians and tech teams to create opportunities for people to interact with God in our weekend gatherings.
Both of my grandfathers and my father were all long-term Assembly Of God pastors, so I grew up in a Pentecostal church environment. I graduated from a Pentecostal college called Bethany College in Scotts Valley, CA with a BA in Church Leadership and a minor in music. I have served on staff in an Assembly of God church, a Presbyterian church, a non-denominational church, and a Baptist church. So my church experience is all over the place, but I have come to appreciate all of their unique expressions of worship.
I am married to the lovely Mrs. Christi Combs who still knocks me off my feet, and I am father to three crazy, fun girls. Showing my West Coast roots, I am a 49er football fan, a Giants baseball fan. And oh, how I miss In-N-Out Burger (cue the violins). My favorite movie of all time? Back to the Future! I also love working with my hands, in fact I occasionally drive one of my personal restoration projects- a 65 VW Beetle.
