I'm a simple man with a simple mission:  To learn to love as Christ loves, to win people to Christ, and to help people grow in their relationship with Christ.  Preaching the Gospel is important.  Making sure the Gospel is clearly stated, and accurate is my goal.  The power of the Gospel is enormous.  Timothy was told to "Preach the Word," 2 Timothy 4:2.  So, I preach the Word of God.  The same Word that Paul says is, God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  (2 Tim 3:16-17 - NIV)

 

Romans 1:16 tells us the Gospel is the power of God for salvation.  Hebrews 4:12 reveals the Word of God is living and active.  So, communicating the Gospel is an important mission.  Please pray that I can complete my task, people will learn of God's love for us, of Christ's sacrifice for us, of the Spirit's strength for us, and that the Church will actively execute our mission (Matthew 28:18-20).

 

Personally, I have a great wife, Becky, and five wonderful children, three sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law, one grandson and one granddaughter.  I was raised in Crocker, MO and received my first real training of the Bible from the Crocker Christian Church and from my mentor, Merwyn "Mac" McMillan.  I received my formal education at Central Missouri State University, Warrensburg, MO and at Central Christian College of the Bible, Moberly, MO.

 

I have held ministries with the Missouri Training Center for Men, Moberly, MO, Allerton Christian Church, Allerton, IA, Lake Eufaula Christian Church, Eufaula, OK, and have now been with the Solid Rock Christian Church since November of 1994.
