I was born into a Christian home in Monte Vista, Colorado. My parents were passionate about teaching me from a young age about the love of God and His special plan for my life. At the age of seven, through the prayer and careful help of my parents, I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
As a senior in high school, the Lord burdened my heart to be a preacher of the Gospel. I soon enrolled in Bible college where I received a great education along with practical and hands-on training for the ministry. Upon graduation from college, it has been my joy to be involved in full time ministry!
My enthusiasm for casting vision and developing leaders in the local church encourages Christians to be passionate about serving God. I have a heart to inspire, motivate, and communicate the Word of God to all age groups. Whether it is praying, studying, knocking on doors, preaching, or maintaining the church property, I genuinely enjoy the “work of the ministry” and am optimistic about what God will do with a group of people who are hungry to do His work—His way! There is nothing dull about serving the King of Kings! God has placed the local church here “for such a time as this”. America is ripe for revival!
What a joy and blessing it is to serve the Lord with a supportive and engaged family—and God has certainly blessed me with a wonderful family! My wife, Sally, enjoys serving alongside me in ministry. Whether it is teaching a Bible lesson to children, discipling ladies, or being involved in the church music, she loves serving the Lord. Our daughter, Sadie, was born in 2012. As a family, we enjoy serving the Lord together…both inside and outside the church walls! Our home is a place where we love to share a meal while connecting and enjoying sweet fellowship with church folks. One of our priorities as a family is to ensure our home maintains a welcoming presence that we pray will encourage all those who enter!
Thank you for this opportunity to share with you a glimpse of how my family and I enjoy serving the Lord in the ministry. We look forward to many fruitful years ahead as we continue to follow God’s plan for our lives here at Grace Baptist Church.
