My passion is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry… to present them mature and complete as I invite them into knowing Him and making Him known… I burn to see people walk in freedom, joy, hope, wholeness, and intimacy with Jesus. Currently I am serving as a Discipleship Pastor (in a non-denominational church) as well as continuing projects in Costa Rica (where I lived for 7 years as a missionary), but I’ve been fortunate to serve as a Senior Pastor and Youth Pastor as well. I began full-time ministry in January 1997. I have acquired a MML, M.Div. equivalency, and a D.Min in Practical Theology (from Southeastern University an ATS accredited seminary). I am bilingual (Spanish). I would be delighted to offer references, engage in dialogue regarding questions, and / or provide links to sermons previously preached. Lastly, I live in Knoxville, TN.
