I was saved as a teenager and called to preach at the age of 17. After completing my ministerial training at Bob Jones University in 1972, I taught middle school Bible and science for 2 ½ years. It was while teaching in Jacksonville, FL that I met and married Myra Pruett of Rainsville, AL. I was ordained in 1974 and have been preaching the Gospel for over 50 years.
In June of 2021, after serving for more than 20 years as pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Centerville, GA, I retired and moved to Waxhaw NC. I am continuing my ministry of preaching and teaching as the Lord provides opportunity, while also writing for this website.
My wife and I will celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary in December of this year. We have three sons, Jeremy, Jason, and Jonathan and ten grandchildren.
