About My Family

Tammy and I have been married since June of 1986. We have three grown children and two grandchildren.

From 1984 to 2009 we served local congregations through music, youth education and discipleship ministries in Illinois, Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee and Nebraska.  

About My Ministry

A native of Cahokia, Ill., I entered active duty service in the United States Navy in 2009 following more than 20 years as a civilian minister. Currently, I am assigned to the Naval Medical Education Command in San Diego where I am earning four units of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) in order to minister in a clinical setting.

My next duty station will be as the Command Chaplain for Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms in California beginning October 2021.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain's ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
NAMB does not provide compensation for SBC endorsed chaplains. However, a general fund is available to receive donations in support of the ministry and pastoral care to SBC endorsed chaplains. To donate, please visit Support Chaplaincy (
