About My Family

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I like reading, traveling, sightseeing, NASCAR and old movies.

About My Ministry

I'm currently serving as a chaplain in the VA Medical Healthcare System. Previously, I served as an overseas missionary and a local church pastor for around 25 years.

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 are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy 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 chaplains minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Build relationships with chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send cards.
Become personally invested in the ministry of chaplains. Learn about their ministry context, so you can provide relevant help and resources.
