The Lord gave me two committed Christian parents who consistently set the gospel before me. After the Lord opened my heart to Him at the age of eight, I began to sense the Lord’s leading to the Christian ministry. In my first year of seminary at Bob Jones University, I yielded to the Lord’s leading and began to focus my preparation for the pastoral ministry. I concluded my graduate studies with a PhD in Church History from BJU.
During the years of my seminary training, the Lord led my wife and me to Mount Calvary Baptist Church where the Lord used Pastors Jesse Boyd and Mark Minnick to mold my ministerial philosophy with sound expositional preaching and application. I have been serving at Mount Calvary Baptist Church since May, 1999, and am thankful to be in a ministry that continues to have a formative hand in my own Christian life.
The Lord has given me a most helpful wife, Jeanne, and blessed us with six children who serve Him with us.
