I spent some years practicing law before responding to God’s call to enter full-time ministry. I wrote a recent book, Path of Life: The Way of Wisdom for Christ Followers out of a genuine concern for our culture and for the way in which many lives are injured by foolish behavior. As a pastor, I know that a lack of love at an early age is the source of many problems later in life. Almost as serious is the problem of a lack of training in wisdom and wise living that leaves many contemporary people at the mercy of the worst aspects of our culture.
From 1994 to April 2017 I served in two pastorates near Memphis, Tennessee, one at First Presbyterian Church of Brownsville, Tennessee, and the other at Advent Presbyterian Church in Cordova, Tennessee. I then served Bay Presbyterian Church in Bay Village Ohio as it’s transitional pastor. We currently live in San Antonio, Texas, where I help our church and write.
I received my Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA., and my Doctor of Ministry degree from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY. At Asbury, I studied Leadership and especially the Spirituality of Leadership. I also have a B.A. from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and a J.D. Degree from the University of Texas at Austin.
My wife, Kathy, and I have four grown children. Currently, we are spread out from one end of the world to the other and from one end of America to the other. Each one of them is pursuing their own careers and bliss!
Kathy and I recently published a book on evangelism and discipleship training called, Salt & Light: Everyday Discipleship. We continued e to help churches learn to disciple people more effectively and work with missions.
