Bert was born and raised in the Bay Area before bible college brought him to Ventura County. God used Bert’s years working with student and college ministry to prepare him to join the Anthem Church staff while attending Eternity Bible College. After wearing various ministry hats, Bert was ordained as an elder and commissioned to plant Anthem Ventura.
Bert and his wife Sherry lead an amazing team that launched Anthem Ventura in the Fall of 2015. It’s Bert and Sherry’s dream to see people find their way back to God and experience his goodness, grace and redemption.
Bert is the lead pastor for Anthem Ventura. He and his wife Sherry live in downtown Ventura with their two sons, Calvin and Truman, enjoying life on the coastlands.
