Brief Biography: An unchurched (unreached) delinquent teen, I began my relationship with Jesus while reading John 3 in a Bible that was left in my room. Jesus and His Body delivered me through a father leaving (homosexuality), poverty, abuse, a brother’s murder and several other life events. Along the way God placed, ministers, educators and coaches in my path to minister to me. It is why I have spent my life in education and ministry to students and their families. Having been married 32 years and raising 3 daughters who are either in ministry or married to ministers, I am leaving a legacy quite different that what my circumstances would have produced had Jesus not interrupted my life. Tricia and I teach and mentor 30 young families and also provide SYMBIS premarital counseling.
It’s all about Jesus,
