Comments: What have you been up to since you graduated?

I grew up in Watsonville, CA. My dad owned the local “Pronto Pup” drive-in. (Later the A&W Drive-in Freedom, CA) This was also the cruise hangout for teenagers in the 60's. On the weekends the guys in their “cool cars” would cruise in and out of the parking lot. Remember curb service? Roll down your window and the car hop would hang your tray of burgers and soda’s on your window. Later, dad opened the A&W drive-in and this became the next hangout. In those days there were no McDonalds, Burger Kings, or Taco Bells.

Our family spent lots of time together at Pinto Lake located only a few miles from our house. My dad loved driving his hot-rod boats and mother along with my two older brothers grew up water-skiing. Every year we looked forward to camping trips to Lake Shasta in Northern California. What great memories, visiting Shasta Dam, skiing up the Sacramento, Pit and McCloud rivers, camping on the lake and waiting for the bears to show up in the late hours of the night.

In 1958 when I was eleven my parents along with my two older brothers (Dick and Ted) went to a conference at Mount Herman to hear Billy Graham. My parents (Dick and Lurene) and my two older brothers all accepted Christ into our lives that summer day. That day, God forgave our sins and freely gave our family, never-ending life. A few years later at Hume Lake Camp, I gave my life to God to use in full-time Christian work. Once I took the call, my life was changed forever.

Road cycling. I rode a century last year (2012) and usually average 100 miles a week.

A Married Guy...

Kay and I met at a bible study I was leading. Three years later I married this cute Christ-like girl on June 16, 1972. God gave us three children, Scott, Jeff and Kristy. Jeff went to his home to heaven in January of 2006. We praise God for the promise that we will see our son again! Kay and I have served the Lord for 30 years. We began serving young people: Jr. High, High School and College. I have pastored four churches, one in Nevada and three in California.

Something of Interest

I water-skied professionally for Marine world and Sea World of Ohio back in the 70's.

School Story: (Have a favorite school story? Funny memory? This can be used for anything you'd like to share.)

I water-skied a lot growing up and through my HS years. I later water-skied professionally at Marine World Africa USA in Redwood City and later at Sea World of Ohio.

My HS years I struggled with ADHD, however doctors didn't have a name for it then. So HS was really a struggle when it came to focusing on studies. I later did quite well in College and seminary and made the honor rolls. I went on to get a Masters Degree in Bible and a Doctorate in Theology.

What do you do for fun?

At 72, cycling to try to keep fit, reading and studying. Come visit www.crosspointechurch.net

Praying for my classmates. This virus is a first for all of us. Pastoring for almost 40 years and studying Gods Word has taught me that I can trust Gods Word in the midst of uncertainty. I invited Jesus into my life when I was 11 years old. I asked Him to forgive my sins and He Did. Anyway, friends, why not do the same if you haven’t already. Then invite Jesus to come into your life, He will. Love our wonderful memories we all share together. May the Lord protect you and your families. Greg
