Hey guys, I am thrilled that you would visit my blog and consume my content. I am a follower of Jesus, married to the beautiful and talented Victoria Kipko and currently the lead pastor at Forward Church, a brand new church plant in Irvine, California. Before Vika and I planted Forward Church in March of 2015, we were a part of an ethnically Slavic church for ten years, also in Orange County California.
The best way to get familiar with me and my content is to simply connect with me on Social Media. That will give you a pretty good idea of what I am all about.
I also have a podcast called The Fuel For Life which launched in October of 2013. Click here to listen to it on iTunes or click here to download the brand new Fuel For Life app, now available on the Apple App Store.
I love people, love teaching and preaching and love producing gospel-centered content that will fuel your faith. If you like what you see here, you can get notified of when new content is published by signing up for my email list by clicking here.
I absolutely love espresso, love iced coffee and definitely not ashamed of it. I am a serial starter and a multiprenuer which means my head is full of ideas and concepts that I want to implement to get the gospel of Jesus to as many people as possible, by any means possible.
I graduated from University of Washington with an emphasis on Business Administration and Urban Planning. Yes it’s true, there was a point in my life where I really wanted to be a civil engineer, but God had different plans. Shortly after graduating from UW, I attended two seminaries: The Masters Seminary in Sun Valley, California and Talbot Theological Seminary in La Mirada, California. I graduated from Talbot in 2011. I absolutely loved going to school and if it is the Lord’s will, I definitely want to pursue my Doctoral Degree in the near future.
A majority of my audio and video content that you will see is created and produced by the incredibly talented Ben Gusenkov. Check out the interview he gave on my podcast here and also check out his site for any of your video or audio needs, by clicking here.

If you are ever visiting Southern California, specifically Orange County, I would love to have coffee with you and also would love it if you would join us for our Sunday Service at 10:30am at Forward Church. Simply hit me up on any social media and we will connect.
Let’s do all that we can to help as many people as possible, faithfully follow Jesus!
Yours in Christ,
