I trusted Christ in between my sophomore and junior year at the University of Cincinnati. My older brother shared the good news about Jesus Christ with me. He shared from the Bible that Jesus Christ died for my sins and arose from the dead and that I need to personally place my trust in Him for eternal life. I placed my trust in Christ while stopped at a stoplight in Cincinnati.

After teaching full time at Dallas Theological Seminary for 18 years, God opened a new door of ministry for me at Christ Chapel. I moved from DTS to Christ Chapel in 2006.

Patty and I were married in 1973. We have four grown children and four granddaughters. I enjoy reading, writing, spending time with my family and traveling to Israel.
