MINISTRY GOALS

            I feel that God has led me to this type of ministry, given me a talent to serve Him in this capacity.  I have been serving in one form or another since I was 12 years old and cannot be content unless I am actively working in His kingdom.  That is why, although I was prospering at Enterprise, I desired a way to serve full time.  Eventually, I would like to be able to continue my education by earning a degree in Christian Counseling or Marriage and Family Counseling.
 

PERSONAL STATEMENT

            I strongly desire to lead others to Christ.  I believe that God has given me skills to do so.  At this stage in my life, I feel a connection to those in their teen years.  I feel that I have an ability to relate to them and to communicate with them in culturally relevant contexts.  I am mild tempered and accepting and have been told that I am easy to get along with.  Christ is the center of my life and I strive to live an exemplary model.  My wife is my helpmate and best friend.  The blessing of my daughter gives me the opportunity to glimpse every day how God must feel when He loves His children.  When my father was baptized, he told my mother that he was not going to be a “pew-sitting” Christian.  He immediately began studying and learning and has been ministering for over 20 years.  He passed his zeal for the Lord to me and I am excited about any opportunity for me to continue to dedicate myself to the Lord’s work.
