Del grew up in California and Oklahoma and came to faith in Christ at the age of 18 while on Christmas break from college. A US Army veteran, Del served four years on active duty as an Army officer and four years in the reserves. He worked in corporate America as a professional executive in a variety of roles primarily in new business start-ups, finance, logistics and customer service. He surrendered to the Lord’s call to full-time vocational ministry at the age of 35 and pursued his seminary education. With a background in business and progressive ministry roles, God has led Del to plant in an area where all his life & work experience will come into play.
