As a young Youth Pastor, the Senior Pastor handed me a box and said, “This is what I want you to use.” It was a box of Word of Life Local Church Ministries materials. It was my first introduction to Word of Life. After many years as a Club leader, I was invited to join the Youth Reachout (short term missions) staff in 1996. Since then I have served in several areas of the ministry, including four years in Florida where I worked directly with the Bible Institute students in the financial area. Now the Lord has seen fit to place me in the Admissions department as the Dean of Admissions here at WOLBI. I am married to my high-school sweetheart, Sharon. We have three married children (all WOLBI grads, along with their spouses) and four grandchildren.
