SALVATION

THE STORY OF HOW CHRIST RESCUED ME FROM MY SIN

I was not born into a Christian household. My parents were not believers, but had attended church infrequently as children. My mom is a Cajun from Southwest Louisiana and her only experience with organized religion was in Catholicism. Although, she attended church on a somewhat regular basis, she had not yet experienced new life in Christ Jesus, nor knew Him as Lord and Savior. My dad’s family attended twice a year at best (Christmas and Easter) at the neighborhood Baptist church in South Carolina. I mention all this to say that my two sisters and I were not exposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ by our parents at an early age. 

 

I was born in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area, to two loving, dedicated parents. I have a two year older sister that is a school teacher in Willis, Texas and a twin sister that last served in the Armed Forces for twelve years.  As kids we moved ALL THE TIME. When my parents came in to the living room and announced that we need to have a “family meeting”, our immediate response was “Where are we moving?” We moved, literally, every two years of my life until the age of eighteen. (South Carolina – Texas – New York – Connecticut – Kentucky – Kansas – back to Texas – then finally Louisiana) NO, in case you were wondering, we were not a military family. My dad spent twenty five years of his life in Corporate America.  When he moved up the ladder, we moved out of our house!  As a result of the constant change and interruption this brought to my life, I spent the majority of my childhood and adolescence in a constant drive to find acceptance.                                                                                                                                                                                     CONTINUE >>>

CALLING

THE STORY HOW GOD CALLED ME INTO VOCATIONAL MINISTRY TO THE LOCAL CHURCH

God made a way and I was approached the following week by the pastor at the church I was attending with an opportunity to become their Student Minister. It has been the privilege of my life to have served the local church and God’s people without pause since receiving that direction and calling.       

 

I have dedicated myself to the work of teaching the Word of God and making disciples of Jesus, who make disciples of Jesus through faithful preaching, personal mentoring, biblical counseling, leading, vision-casting and with a heart to walk with God’s church in His power. I have a relentless passion for seeing the people of God become biblically literate, possess doctrinal integrity, make disciples, obey everything we have been commanded and live in a manner worthy of the calling of Jesus Christ.                                                                                                                                                                <<< BACK
