As a young man, God called me to the mission field of public education. I began teaching mathematics and coaching in 1984, and God has blessed with numerous opportunities of allowing me to lead students, parents, and fellow-educators to faith in Christ Jesus.
In the year 2000 at the age of 39, God called me to preach His Word. With His calling, He also empowered me as I began as pastor of the Wilson Community Baptist Church, Henryetta, Oklahoma, March 2000.
In my fifth year as a pastor, God made known that His direction for this ministry would be to serve Him in full-time evangelism. We moved to Haskell, Oklahoma, in September 2004, and I am thrilled to be serving my Lord according to His call on my life.
My wife Traci and I were married on November 6, 1981, and have 4 wonderful children, three who are married and our youngest in college. We became grandparents in January 2010. I serve as the staff evangelist at the First Baptist Church of Haskell.
