Please allow me to introduce my ministry and myself. As a result of the faithful witness of my brother, I received Christ as my Savior in September 1974 as a 19-year-old young man. I was called to preach within three months of my salvation. Having grown up in a Catholic family, I knew nothing about Baptist churches but the Lord led me to get baptized and join a Fundamental Baptist Church within four months of my salvation. I attended their Bible Institute for one year and then attended Hyles-Anderson College from January 1976 to August 1981. I received a Bachelors degree in Pastoral Theology and a Masters degree in Educational Administration. I also met and married my wife, Linda, while in college.
Between 1982 and 1996 I was a pastor of two different churches: one in Iron Mountain, MI for four years, and another in Bremer, IA for seven years. I also was a school administrator for two years in Lansing, MI between 1986 and 1988. In 1996 I took a trip to Nigeria because I had heard it was a good idea for pastors to take at least one mission’s trip. Little did I know how that trip would change my life. It was during that trip that God gave me a vision for this ministry.
In 1996 I resigned my church, sold my house and used that money to start my overseas trips as a Missionary-Evangelist going to different countries working with missionaries and national pastors in starting churches, holding revivals, expanding church ministries, and doing the work of an evangelist. I have preached scores of mission conferences in the United States challenging churches to in increase their giving to missionaries. In March of 2005 I became a field representative for FBMI, the mission board of the First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana. In 2013 I became the FBMI Field Service Coordinator for the Western Hemisphere. The monthly support I receive makes it possible for me to continue this ministry. You will find the results of my trips on this website. I ask you to please read the recommendations given herein. Contact me if you feel I could be a help to your church.
