Some words from Devin:

Over the last two decades, my lifes journey has involved being in full time pastoral ministry for  almost 9 years, working in the corporate world, being a full time stay-at-home dad, and working with teenage boys in a residential recovery program.  In that time I have had the blessing and honor of being married for over 11 years and having 4 beautiful children. My experiences, relationships and faith have enriched, humbled and strengthened me to be able to come alongside others and help them through their journeys.

Whether you find yourself: struggling to stay in a relationship, hold a marriage together, trying to make sense of relationship difficulties in your life, frozen by the effects of a divorce, trapped in an addiction, overwhelmed and frustrated by life, confused about who you are and what you want, wrestling with spiritual issues, or just find yourself in a rut in life-  My hope and prayer is that you do not walk and endure this journey alone but that you can come to know and experience the hope, healing and restoration that the LORD desires for you.  I would love to join with you and be a part of that process, however long that may be, and help you find or rediscover that change you are looking for.

Feel free to contact me on my voicemail at (408) 486-9527. I would love to hear from you.
