Assured of eternal salvation with God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and being called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, my objective in this life is to do the will of God. I now present my life as an open testimony of my beliefs and faith to serve as one called to proclaim God's saving work through Jesus Christ and become feeder, protector, guide and shepherd of God's people. It is my belief based on Scripture, that the under shepherd of Jesus Christ must minister to the spiritual, mental, physically, financial and social welfare of God's people.

Favorite Verse: 2 Corinthians 4:5 -7
"For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus sake. For God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us."
"My personal story is a testimony to the Lord on how the knowledge and acceptance of Jesus in one's life will cause regeneration from the willful participation of sin in one's life. The Lord has blessed me tremendously all of my life professionally, from my enlisted Air Force experience, my college success, my commission as an Officer in the Air Force, my blessings in business and corporate but more importantly being used as a Pastor for the service of Christ."
