I spent years practicing law before responding to God’s call to enter full-time ministry. I wrote a recent book, Crisis of Discipleship: Renewing the Art of Relational Disciple-Making, out of concern for our culture and the church’s decline in the West.
Kathy and I published a practical book on evangelism and discipleship training called Salt & Light: Everyday Discipleship. Crisis of Discipleship is an attempt to outline a Biblical and theological foundation for the techniques of relational disciple-making in post-modern culture.
This blog, “Journey on the Path of Life,” generally looks at discipleship and the history of political l theology and philosophy with a view towards a view of discipleship and political thought informed by the Christian emphasis on wisdom and love. I try not to write my own personal prejudices in the blog but to help readers gain a wise and loving perspective on life.
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 its transitional pastor. We currently live in San Antonio, Texas.
I received my Master 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.
