Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you find it encouraging. I have been in full-time ministry in the local church for almost 20 years. My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married since 1994 and we have two fun teenagers. I have served in churches in Texas and Oklahoma, from large to small. The friends and fellow workers in each of these places of service are incredibly special to me. Understanding my giftedness in the areas of pastoral care and leadership, I studied Psychology at Oklahoma Baptist University, and received a Master’s in Religious Education and a Master’s in Marriage and Family Counseling from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1997.
