Almost every day I hear people in ministry dealing with personal issues which I have experienced, walked through, and gained God’s wisdom. Many of these issues were/are gut-wrenching, faith-challenging, and grief-strickening. The way I trusted God in these issues impacted my ministry and strengthened my faith.
I seek to come alongside of fellow persons in ministry to assist them to become stronger in their faith and productive in their ministries.
I was called early in my life to ministry at the age of 17, yet I did not respond to this call until my late 30s. Because I wasn’t sure I could pastor a church when I graduated from Elon College, I started teaching school, and began a career in education. During that period of 17 years in public education as teacher, principal, and associate in the Virginia Department of Education, and assistant superintendent, I also earned a MEd degree from UNCG (University of North Carolina at Greensboro).
It was then that God called again, so I enrolled in Lancaster Seminary where I received an MDiv degree. After being ordained I pastored churches in SE Ohio and in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia before settling in Kannapolis, NC, where I pastored two churches and now call home. Along the way I earned a DMin degree from Southwest Bible College and Seminary.
Recently I completed 16 months of service as interim pastor for St. Luke’s Reformed Church near Granite Quarry, NC. In the recent past I have been a teacher, coach, and principal at First Assembly Christian School in Concord, NC. My wife, Doris, and I have also served as the prayer ministries coordinators at JAARS (the support organization for Wycliffe Bible Translators) in Waxhaw, NC.
In addition to my ministry at PastorCare, I serve the Lord as President of New Gate Ministries, Inc., mentor pastors on a regular basis, and am actively involved in prayer ministry. I take seriously John Wesley’s words, “God will do nothing on earth except in answer to believing prayer.”
My wife and I have 4 grown children and 10 grandchildren. We have been married for over 51 years.
