I’m a husband, a dad and a proud grandpa. And I love motorcycles. My best friend Katharine (I call her Kat) and I have been married for 35 years. I haven’t a clue how she puts up with me.
There are three wonderful people in this world who call me “Dad”. Well, six if you count my two daughters-in-law and son-in-law. So if you did the math, that means I have three children, two sons and a daughter. Our oldest son is an electrical contractor here in our area. He's also or worship leader. He and his wife have four of our grandchildren. Our middle son and his wife also live in the area. He loves his job in law enforcement. He has our oldest grandchild. And last, but not least, our daughter and her husband live in Idaho of all places. Sorry, Idahoans. It really is a nice place to visit. So three of our grandchildren live 2500 miles away.
My passion is to help others on their journey to Love God, Love People, and Influence the World. We do this through sound teaching, action-oriented preaching, loving, family environment and opportunities to impact our community with the tangible love of Christ.
My Ph.D. is in Christian Counseling. Most of my work has been in the area of Trauma, Crisis Counseling, Critical Incident Stress and Stress Management for First Responders. I am board certified as an Expert in Traumatic Stress through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.
I love teaching and helping others reach their God-empowered potential. I look forward to getting to know you in this loving community we call Faith.
