When God saved RJ as a senior in high school, it radically showed him how important it was to reach his lost friends with the gospel. Since that moment, he has reached thousands of students in Southern California.
After serving for 10 years at Harvest Christian Fellowship under the leadership of Greg Laurie, God gave RJ the opportunity to be the Student Ministries Pastor at Magnolia Church, where he speaks on a weekly basis and share the gospel on school campuses all over his city.
RJ lives in his hometown of Riverside, CA. He attended California Baptist University and graduated with a B.A. in Christian Studies, and is currently pursuing an M.Div. at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is married to Melissa, and loves raising his daughter Emma Rose.
