I am enthusiastic about helping others discover their purpose and grow into a deeper relationship with Jesus. It is great to see their eyes light up at their “Ah Ha!” moment when they discover they were created for something more. My hope is that this blog will help encourage and inspire you along your way. Join the conversation and take the time to share with me your own story.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Janice for over 30 years. We currently live in McDonough Georgia with our daughter. Our two boys have left the nest and we have two wonderful grand kids. Of course we cannot forget about our dog Bear.

Oh the Outrage

I really try hard to avoid political posts. I find it very divisive and rarely helpful. However, it is important for Christians to be involved in the political arena, but with my role as a pastor I find my call to be more about sharing the truth of a life with Jesus.  I do ask […]

In 2019 I saw the Double Nickel

What an odd title for a blog post. Yes, I guess it is. Last year I made my 55th pass around the sun. For me that was a bit of an accomplishment.  Several years ago I wrote about one of my greatest childhood heroes, my dad. I was just eleven years old when I watched […]

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part I

I don’t have a “one word” every year but on the years that I do they seem to just show up. I don’t go through some exercise to think one up. They could be seeds planted by the Holy Spirit or they could be my imagination. What I do know is when they do show […]

The Risk of Mary and Joseph

It has hard to believe 2019 is almost done. Here we find ourselves at yet another Christmas. A time to remember the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. Without a birth there can be no new life. I have been reflecting on the reality that some 2000 years ago a young virgin named Mary and […]

Christ as our supreme gain magnifies him, exalts him, worships him whether on the street or in the sanctuary.” – John Piper It is all too easy to get our Christian walk of faith backwards. For […]
