About My Family

God has blessed me with an incredible family. My wife and I met in seminary and have been married for nearly 34 years.

We have two adult children of whom we are very proud. Zach is married with twins boys and serves as an Army chaplain. Our daughter, Ashley, lives and works with a humanitarian nonprofit in Washington, D.C.

In December of 2019, our family experienced the joy of our first grandchildren, twin boys. What a gift!

About My Ministry

After 24 years in the pastoral ministry, God led me to the ministry of a healthcare chaplain. I have served as a hospice chaplain for the past 10 years. Each day, I am fortunate to be given the gift of caring for those who are dealing with end of life issues and provide spiritual support that humbly and respectfully meets them where they are.

I sometimes find myself at the end of the day offering up a praise gift to God, "God, I can't believe that you allow me to do this work and care for these people in your name!"

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 that I will be faithful to God and provide care that meets the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of those whom I serve. Pray that those who have no peace will discover the peace of God. Pray that I will faithfully care for my teammates that they too might experience the peace and goodness of God. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.
