Curtis is a So-Cal born and raised boy who grew up surfing the breaks of Newport Beach (he even lettered in surfing in high-school). While his grandparents (Frank & Peggy) were both very active in a Presbyterian church in southern California where his grandmother worked as the accountant for fifty years, Curtis grew up with little involvement in the church. His childhood memories of church were of singing John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt and Do Your Ears Hang Low. Looking back now as a pastor of a vibrant, wonderful, small community church in beautiful Central Oregon for the past fifteen years that lack of Christian upbringing has served him well in his pursuit of God with openness and inquisitiveness. He came to Christ late in life (at the age of nineteen) and has an insatiable thirst for the study of the Bible and the pursuit of Christ. He is, by all practical definitions, a normal guy. After working a number of years in business in Dallas, Texas, he received his M. Div. from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon in 1997 and has been serving in full-time church ministry ever since. He is married to his wife Angie, and has been blessed with two boys: Carson and Cooper. In his spare time he enjoys Crossfit and playing golf with his boys and friends.
