For over 30 years I have been speaking to youth all over the nation. God put a burning desire in me to help the hurting and the lost youth in my community. Going into schools, I have brought a message of self-worth and drug and alcohol prevention. Speaking at youth church camps over the years has been a delight, seeing thousands of kids make a commitment to Christ. I have served as youth pastor and lead pastor, counselor and chaplain. My greatest accomplishment in life is being married for 42 years to my best friend and watching our four grown children on their own life journey with our 11 grandkids.
Through my years of experience of loving the hurting and lost, God has prepared me for such a time as this. I will continue to serve youth in the capacity that I always have, as that is a passion God has put in my heart.
