My passion is Jesus Christ. I reach out to people world-wide with the truth about how to live for Jesus Christ, abiding in Him, for life. The Lord allows me to do this through speaking, teaching, writing, and publishing resources that train us to live Biblically.

I have had the privilege of teaching at the university level since 1993 to traditional and non-traditional age students in both the traditional and non-traditional scheduled format. In fact, the Lord provided this professorial opportunity early in my career. It fostered my deep love and appreciation for academia.

I feel called to serve the Lord by utilizing my God-given gifts and abilities in a Christian institution of higher education, specifically LeTourneau University.
