I’ve been a born again Christian for over 35 years, and happily married to a wonderful woman, Janet, for over 29 years. We moved to Kauai in 2003, and have two married children, Becky and her husband Noah Hamilton who live up in Princeville, and Luke and his wife Lindsey who live in Istanbul, Turkey. Our children have blessed us with three wonderful grandchildren. Prior to planting Calvary Chapel Lihue, Bruce served as a worship leader, youth pastor, and an assistant pastor within Calvary Chapel churches since his ordination in 1989.  His life’s verse is John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
