I feel my call is rooted in a sense of helping cultivate and create the culture known as the Kingdom of God. I hope to help people discover the power we each have given to us by God to be creators and cultivators of God’s culture. My wife, Estee Valendy and I co-pastor Saginaw UMC and we share the joy and privilege of being the parents of our sons, Jude and Evan.
