After 11 years as a high school teacher, I responded to God's call to minister to the men in my church and in the community. It was a step that stretched my faith beyond anything I had done before, and forced me to decide if I believed God would supply my needs. My first responsibility is my ministry to my family. The spiritual health of my wife and three daughters is my passion. Beyond that, God has inspired me to meet the needs of men who are isolated, struggling, and desiring more from their relationship with God. The work I do is two-fold. The core of my ministry is to disciple men by helping them live out of their God-given identity, and to reveal their true, masculine heart. Part of that mission is to empower and equip them to go and set more men free. The second area of my ministry is to simply be the hands and feet of Jesus, wherever He sends me. It changes from day to day.  It might be fixing a broken down car, helping someone move, visiting a lonely person; I often don't know what opportunity each day will bring. Many times I use my own funds to carry out this calling. My desire is to be able to finance my ministry, while also providing some support for my family.
