Jesus is first in my life. I exist to serve and glorify him. I love my wife, Vivian. I believe in the gospel, and I want to share my story and God’s story with everyone. I was transformed by turning from my sin which separated me from God, believing Jesus paid the price for my sin by dying on the cross and was raised from the dead. Jesus restored me to a right relationship with a perfect God. “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
Vivian and I have raised six children to love God and serve him with their whole hearts. I love people and believe the best about others. Christ in me is stronger than the wrong desires in me. We have 15 grandchildren, and we want to nurture, equip, train and empower them to do more for the kingdom than they ever thought possible. Because of Christ, my family is closer, my body is strengthened, and my leadership sharper. I have a strong desire to help lead men and women to be leaders at home, at church, at work and in the community. I lead, facilitate and assist in three Bible training centers, three men’s groups and two missions’ organizations. The Bible clearly inspires me to share my blessings, with the poor, widows, orphans and migrants. I served 31 years in the Army, 10 years in industry, have a bachelor’s degree and two masters and I am a member of an HOA board.
