I love the Lord, my Savior.  I love every opportunity to tell others about Him, which is why I love being a pastor.  Since 1981 I have been a pulpit preacher in a variety of United Methodist congregations.  My undergraduate degree from Oral Roberts University (ORU) (1980) is in Biblical Studies with a New Testament emphasis.  My Masters of Divinity (1984) is also from ORU. 

My lovely wife Jeri is my gifted, compassionate partner in life and ministry.  Jeri’s gift of teaching adults and youth is deeply appreciated by all.  We met while working youth camp together.  Our daughter Rachel teaches Spanish at Heritage Hall in OKC, and her husband Ernesto manages technology for the classroom at Oklahoma City University (OCU).  Our daughter Elizabeth holds a Masters in Counseling (2012) from OCU.  We have one cat, “Shop Cat.” 

Music has been a love of mine since childhood.  Guitar and keyboard started during my teen years and violin during the past few years.  (It is easy to sound bad on violin!)  I love to sing and to sing praises to our God!  I love the outdoors and the water and all beautiful things that God has made!
