I am a Christian pastor and author who helps everyday people hungry for more of God renew their minds, be guided by the Spirit, and fulfill their divine purpose.

While recovering from an accident (click here for the story), I began the discipline of copying Scriptures for 4 hours a day and have spent well over 10,000 hours prayerfully studying the Bible. I’ve copied the entire New Testament and filled thousands of pages of Word studies.

For the last 28 years I have served as a teaching pastor at Jubilee on the Ridge Church in Paradise, California. My duties have included teaching, small groups, media, publications, Internet services, as well as maintenance, new construction, and administration. I also teach in the Ministerial Development Department of the California-Nevada Church of God.

I live in Paradise with my amazing wife Debbie and have been blessed with two great sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing daughter-in-law to be, and two awesome grandsons.

I’ve dealt with my share of challenges in life but God has been overwhelmingly good to me all the time. I am ordained through the Church of God, headquartered in Cleveland, Tennessee.
