Education: After finishing a his degree in Biblical Studies from Grace College in Winona Lake I then attended Grace Theological Seminary leaving before completing my M.Div. because of family needs and a call to serve as a missionary with Child Evangelism Fellowship.

Best advice given to me about preaching: In the end, So What? How have I helped people to know God’s Word accurately and know God more intimately.
Hobbies: Reading - Photography - Electronics and Aquariums
Something funny that happened while preaching: Years ago I looked out while preaching at a church full of mature saints to see over 1/2 of them asleep. Obviously they loved the LORD, loved one another and yet their age and health kept them from staying awake.
What I want on my tombstone: He was faithful untilt he end!
