I am Len, an assistant pastor at Mariners responsible for "connections" which to us means everything that connects people to each other and God - going deeper in LifeGroups, LifeMission, and connectedness at Mariners.
I grew up in the East Bay, but have been living on the coastside for many years now and have been at Mariners since July 2001. Believe it or not I like the fog.
I did my undergrad studies at Bethany College and have a Masters of Arts degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
My wife, Diane, and I have an incredible daughter and we enjoy family times going to movies, snuggling on the couch together or going to Disneyland/world. I am admittedly a bit crazy for all things Starbucks and have quite the collection of their ornaments. I also enjoy watercolor painting.
One of my favorite Bible passages is found in Psalm 37:4-6; "Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you." Delight - Commit - Trust; a great way to connect with God.
You can often see me going for my near daily fix of Starbucks! So go early in the morning most weekdays if you want to drop-in and "connect" with me.
