About My Family

After missionary service in Old Mexico for 24 years, Karen, who is my wife, and I moved to Nebraska and served eight years as Hispanic church planting catalysts. We served jointly with the Eastern Nebraska and Northeast Nebraska Baptist Associations. Three years of that time we served as North American Mission Board (NAMB) missionaries. In 2010, I was called by the San Carlos Southern Baptist Association in Arizona to serve as the director of missions. I retired from San Carlos Southern Baptist Association in 2012, but continued as a NAMB missionary. At present we are serving as church planting team members with the North American Mission Board. We have been married 52 years and have two daughters and seven grandchildren.

About My Ministry

In light of our cross-cultural ministry background, we are serving to strengthen, encourage, consult and equip needy churches in Arizona. We serve Anglo, Hispanic and Native American churches. We are available as God leads to encourage and help where help is needed in His kingdom building. Presently, we are serving on the Apache Reservation in the San Carlos Adult/Juvenile Rehabilitation/Detention Center and in the San Carlos Apache Baptist Church in Peridot, Ariz., where we are members. With the help of contacts made within the jail, we are doing Bible studies with ex-inmates with the plan of seeing a new church start.
