Vaughn was born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado. He married Ronda in 1989 and the Lord blessed them with a daughter (Vanessa) and two sons (Josiah and Jedidiah).

A graduate of The Master’s Seminary (M. Div. 2000), Vaughn began his ministry at Santa Clarita Baptist in 2015. Previously he served as pastor of Ogden Valley Community Church in Huntsville, Utah, and Heritage Church in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Vaughn has a passion for expository preaching and discipling men. Among the many verses he cherishes is Luke 17:10:

“So you, too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.'”

Vaughn enjoys all kinds of family activities, including sports and travel. He reads history books in his spare time and cheers for the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
