Junior High and High School Students are my people!  I have been involved in Saddleback Student Ministries for the last 10 years and love every single second of what I get to do every day. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Deena Delin, for 6 years and our relationship gets better and better with every day that passes. I have a passion for students but I also love the outdoors, cars, motorcycles as well as making things with my hands. I am so excited that God has called us to SSM Anaheim and I am so excited to so what He has in store for us!

I have been involved in a Youth Ministry at another church in 2013 and I started serving in Saddleback Student Ministries at the beginning of 2016. I am a student at Biola University and will be graduating spring 2017. I had a lot of struggles with my faith during my Junior High and High School year and because of it, I have a huge heart for High School and Junior High Students. I enjoy the outdoors, video games, comic books, television shows, and movies. I served as the summer Intern in 2016 and I am so thankful to be officially part of the Anaheim staff! I am looking forward to all the things I will learn and all the ways God will use me to bless this ministry!

I have always had a passion for God and His sheep from a young age, and that passion has grown exponentially. I have wanted to be a pastor since I was 8 years old and I have been involved with Kids ministry since I was in 8th grade. Since then, I have felt like God has given me a calling to get involved with the Student Ministries at Saddleback Anaheim. I am currently transitioning into my Junior year at Biola University and am a part of the Preaching Pastoral Ministry Program which is a master’s program that prepares me for internships like this, as well as my future ministry. I cannot wait to build a strong and loving community with the SSM kids and I am looking forward to what God has in-store for this awesome journey!
