One of the hardest things for me to do is to write about myself. I have always felt very awkward in talking about myself to others. But, to give you a brief description of who I am; here is a summary.
I was saved on May 23rd, 1971 and baptized on September 5th, 1971. I accepted the call into the ministry on August 5th, 1975 while at youth camp sponsored by the Georgia Association of Independent Methodist.
After the eleventh grade, I went to Middle Georgia College and graduated from Troy State University, in Troy Alabama with a degree in Biology. Now, one might wonder why did a man who was called into the ministry get a degree in Biology. My father gave me some very good and wise advise. He told me to get a good education because the Lord might send you to a small church to pastor and you will have to make a living outside the church. That proved to be true because I pastored the Eastern Shore Wesley Bible church for twenty-three years.
I taught high school for 4 years – chemistry, physics, physical science, and oceanography. I spent 22 years in the chemical industry in the environmental field. I know what it means to work for a living and pastoring a church at the same time.
I am the Senior Pastor of Christ Independent Methodist church in Palatka, Fl. I began my ministry here in January 2007.
The greatest titles that I hold are: husband, father, and grandfather. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Pat, three great children, and five of the smartest and prettiest grandchildren in the entire world.
My life verse is 1 Corinthians 9:16 “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”
