Pastor Al is one of those Southern California transplants. He was born and raised in San Diego, California and has now lived in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years and for the last 10 years, Pastor Al and Elaine have called the Longview/Kelso area home.
Pastor Al is married to his lovely wife Elaine of 28 years, they have 3 wonderful children and currently have 2 grandchildren.
Pastor Al got saved in 1989 at a men's conference in Anaheim, California.. "My brother had been sharing the Lord with me for about a year or so before I gave my life to Jesus at the men's conference." Pastor Al said. "Growing up in a religious house, I knew about God, but I knew nothing about the saving grace of Jesus Christ." Once Al and Elaine surrendered their lives to Jesus, they told the Lord that they would follow Him whenever and wherever, and the Lord sent them to Vancouver, Washington where Elaine was born and raised. "Having been called into the ministry even before I was saved (another story for another time) the Lord gave us opportunities to serve Him in several capacities as He readied us to fulfill His calling to begin a church in Cowlitz County."
