How and when did youcome to know the Lord?
I was 21 years old, I wasn’t raised in the church and I was living a pretty typical ‘pagan’ lifestyle. I met a young lady named Kristie who told me about Jesus and invited me to church. A month later I became a believer; I am now married to Kristie.
How and when did youbecome involved in Life ?
After being saved for about two years and serving in the church several people said they believed that I may be called to Life . Thus, I went to Bible College and it was there that I sensed a personal call to Life . While in Bible College, I heard Haddon Robinson preach during an expository preaching emphasis week and it was then that I desired to be an expository preacher. However, my first 15 years I served as a youth pastor before becoming a weekly preacher.
What is the best part of your job?
Seeing people’s lives changed through the preaching and teaching of the whole counsel of God.
What is the most difficult part of your job?
Seeing people’s lives fall apart when they reject the Gospel and fail to hear, receive and do the Word of God (See James 1:19-25).
If you weren’t doing what you’re currently doing, what would you like to be doing?
I can’t imagine doing anything else, but before becoming a Christian I always wanted to open up a restaurant.
