God saved me in 1981 then God called me to preach and in 1982 when I preached my first message, I was ordained by WV Gospel Tabernacle Aug 8th, 1987. I left the Gospel Tab and went into the Freewill Baptist and was ordained through them May 17th, 2008. Though I was not first Ordained till 1987 I started pastoring my first church in 1984 Marlaing Gospel Tab.

I graduated from South Charleston High School in 1978. Though I have been taught mostly through God’s spirit through many hours of study, I have taken numerous classes through Liberty Baptist College.

I am married to my beautiful wife Cindy since 1980 and we have two daughters and 4 grandchildren. We currently live on a farm in Elkview with Horses, Chickens, Guineas, etc… We also have East German Shepherds we raise and sell. I worked at Kroger for 30 years and retired in 1990 and now serve as a full-time pastor.

I served as pastor in now my 7th church (Garrison Ave. FWB) and I am currently the Assistant Ministerial Clerk for the Kanawha County FWB Conference. I have also served as moderator and several boards I also have been certified through Evangelical Training Association and I am a member of the State and National FWB.

My mission is to preach the good news of the gospel and see people saved. My mission statement is “God loves you and so do I and I want you to go to heaven with me”
