I grew up in the small town of De Soto, Missouri. Although I attended church regularly during my childhood and teen years, I had no understanding of the gospel until some classmates at the University of Missouri (who were part of the Navigator’s ministry) helped me understand how I could put my trust in Christ alone for my salvation.
After practicing law for several years in Houston TX, God led me to Dallas Theological Seminary, and, after graduation, I served as a missionary to Argentina, El Salvador (as a pastor) and Guatemala (as a seminary professor).
God richly blessed me with Jenny as my wife and we spent 23 wonderful years in Latin America as missionaries with Camino Global (CAM) before moving to the US in July of 2013. We have been married for 29 years and have two sons, Caleb and Nathan, who were both born overseas and who are a great joy for us.
Jenny and I have attended Park Springs since October of 2013, and it would be an honor to serve with the elder board. During my time at Park Springs my ministry focus has been in the prison ministry (with Ken Wheeler), teaching, and serving as a small group leader.
