From divorced parents and a “non Christian” up upbringing, I always had a sense of something missing. Mom overcompensated with permissiveness, allowing me at age 13 to experiment with hard drugs and troubled girls at home. “Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll” were the motto as life spun increasingly out of control. What started as an escape, became enslavement in spiritual darkness and nearly 20 years of IV drug addiction, crime and empty relationships. While many friends I grew up with, landed in graves, I was spared and landed in prison. It was there, God began getting my attention, lighting my way to life and freedom in His Word. Now I know what was missing, and want to share with others, the way to know Him, freedom and eternal life.

Qualifications – Education – Experience:
Qualifications: I come to the ministry as Peter, James, John and others were set apart for ministry. Not by a seminary, by the call and Spirit of the Lord who changed their vocation from fishermen to “fishers of men.” The same Lord Jesus Christ called me as He does you, to receive Him, know Him and His power to be a child of God. This is true Higher Learning. As we receive Him, we walk in Him and gather others to Him. He does not call the qualified, He qualifies who He calls. Institutions of learning often times point to or away from this experience.
