Education: I have limited class education beyond High School. However I was raised as a pastor’s son under a wonderfully caring father. I watched and learned under him how to lead a group of people not lord over them. From that experience and the many opportunities I have had to serve as children’s pastor and associate pastor in Oklahoma and California, I have much of the hard knocks experience that has helped me find prudence and wisdom in many hard situations.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: In some degrees I am educationally challenged. But if you will look beyond miss spelled words and miss used words I believe you will find a message from God that has been filtered through a little boy who has been hurt to many times by “church People” yet get’s up every morning and still loves serving them.
May God bless us all in all that we must go through to get the message through. Be strong!

Family: I have two very mature and active daughters in our church. Our oldest daughter Christie is a successful businessperson in our community and over sees the projection ministry in our family sanctuary. Our youngest, Chala is married to a great man who has become a close friend. Together they have given Jan and I four wonderful grandchildren. Gabriel, Israel, Cearealia and Phillip
What my parents think of my sermons: We have limited doctrinal differences, but I am more of a teacher than my father who was totally prophetic and preaching. Yet I receive so much encouragement from them every time they get a chance to sit under my teaching. I think they are proud of me and I give God all the glory.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She seems to feel I am to hard on myself. I always get a thrill looking over her notes from one of my sermons.
