Sam is a pastor’s kid whose first job out of college was as a life agent with New York Life in 1994. Eventually making a twelve-year detour into mortgage-banking and achieving an MBA from USC’s Marshall School of Business, Sam found his way back into the insurance world again (woohoo!). This time combining his years of business experience together with his roots in ministry. Sam views his role with ChurchWest as a great opportunity to increase the stewardship of the ministries he serves and better equip them through ministry-specific resources.
Sam and his family live in Orange County, where he has served as an elder, leads a small group, and has helped found and lead a non-profit ministry for his local church that supports his neighbors’ needs.
