Back in the summer of 1982, before his last year of high school, God saved Troy. While an undergrad at USC, God crystallized a calling to pastoral ministry. Troy graduated from Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology and one month after graduation, Troy and Julie were married. In the first eight years of their marriage, they produced four children. Troy has shepherded the same congregation since 1994, when a team of about 20 faith filled people started a church that would later become Gateway Friends Church.
