Three things you need to know about me:
- I love Jesus, my Lord and Savior, and seek to express that love in personal and public worship, and by a life of obedience to His Word.
- I have been an avid student of the Word of God for over 40 years, including my years of study at Criswell College and Graduate School , as well as Southeastern Theological Seminary.
- I am so thankful that Christ has called me to "preach...the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Eph. 3:8). I usually do expository preaching from books of the Bible.
- I am no longer on staff but I remain a member and volunteer to help as needed. Currently I serve in a support role.
