About Me

photoI was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1983. Although I never pastored a church I was fully ordained of the Holy Spirit once I felt God’s call to give my life to the spiritual development of Christians. My first church after graduation from Southwestern Baptist Seminary was the Winter Park Baptist Church in Wilmington, North Carolina.

After two years in North Carolina, I moved to Shreveport Louisiana and served as Minister of Education of Ingleside Baptist Church and two years later moved to the Summer Grove Baptist Church in Shreveport as the Minister of Education and Administration. I served there for 11 years after which I went to Monroe, Louisiana as Church Program Administrator at First Baptist Church. I served there for 10 years.

After leaving FBC Monroe, I worked as a Church Administration consultant with an organization called “Shared Church Services” out of Memphis, TN. I spent 10 years traveling between Louisiana and Texas where I worked with churches in their administrative processes.

In 2004 I took partial retirement and established the Book Store ministry at First West (First Baptist Church of West Monroe, LA) and also worked in the Media Ministry. I took full retirement in November of 2014.

I am spending my retirement time primarily developing my Teaching and Discipleship ministry which includes my Website, “Spiritual Growth Solutions”.

I can honestly say, I’m having more fun than ever as God is blessing me and my family in so many ways.
