These organizations provide much of the context for my life:
Helping to develop strong leadership in organizations that are intent on making a meaningful difference in the world.
A Christ-centered community intent on proclaiming the gospel, making disciples, and sacrificially serving Jesus.
Encompass World Partners exists to mobilize, equip, deploy and nurture multinational teams of disciple-makers who live and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through engaging in sacrificial service, intentional evangelism and whole-life discipleship, resulting in the creation of healthy spiritual communities.
Up and Running Again’s mission is to assist people seeking to overcome economic poverty. We do this by training people to complete a half-marathon. The goal setting and sense of accomplishment it inspires translates toward a path of lifelong success.
Disaster Resource Alliance exists to strengthen the Christian community to serve Orange County through times of disaster.
When caring people respond to help those who have experienced the trauma of a disaster, the recipients often ask, “Why?” Our answer is simply “to show God’s love.” Traumatic events provide a powerful opportunity for the Church to demonstrate the Good News of God’s love and truth through compassionate action. But it takes planning and preparation to be ready to respond in those situations. Helping our neighborhoods be better prepared to handle a disaster is one way to show we care all the time, not just in the face of immediate tragedy. DRA’s purpose is to educate, equip, and empower churches to meet these needs.
Where marketplace leaders meet ministry opportunity.

Far too many great beans get destroyed at the hands of poor equipment, flawed technique, and coffee storage dispensers. Brewing science was, and continues to be underestimated in our industry. Portola Coffee Lab, a 100% single-cup craft brew coffeehouse was designed and constructed as a nod to craft, quality, and freshness.
