I was a bi-vocational pastor until I retired from Jackson Surgical Associates in May of 2019 and became the full-time pastor for Grace Bible Fellowship. I served as a member of Gideon's International for several years, a certified lay speaker and Sunday School teacher. I received training from Trinity Bible College & Seminary in Newberg, Indiana and The Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching in Memphis, Tennessee. I was ordained to preach on December 12, 2004.
