Meet the Pastor
At an altar lined from one end to the other with young people I found Christ as my personal Savior on the closing night of what was at first intended to be a week-long revival. I was fortunate to not only be born again in a church where God’s Spirit frequently moved in such marvelous ways, but also blessed to receive encouragement and training in ministry by both pastors and lay people alike. By the time I left for college, I had taught Sunday school, served as usher, become youth president, and worked as assistant to the treasurer. During my college years I was even elected to the church board. While a freshman at Purdue, my youth pastor provided me training in evangelism and together we were blessed by the Lord to lead several people to Christ.
As I searched for God’s direction for my life, there was a growing conviction that God was calling me into full-time Christian ministry and I entered God’s Bible College in Cincinnati to prepare for that calling. It was there that I met my beautiful wife, Darla. We were married just a few weeks after her graduation and started pastoring our first church just 2 weeks after that. We have now pastored 3 churches full-time, served as a professor at Hobe Sound Bible College, and had time for 3 children in the midst of all that. God has richly blessed us and we look forward to serving together at Calvary Free Methodist.
