About My Family

Christal and I have been married for 28 years. We are a family of four, plus two. We have one son and one daughter. We have two granddaughters by our daughter and are looking forward to our son's up and coming marriage.

About My Ministry

I am the chief chaplain for the Federal Medical Center, Federal Bureau of Prison in Fort Worth, Texas. We have nearly 1,500 men here for medical treatment.

We started a ministry called Terminal Life Care (TLC). The ministry ensures that no man, no matter why he is in our institution, dies alone. The ministry has been a blessing. We manage nearly 80 volunteers. We hold programs seven days and nights a week and conduct special programs for Christmas, Easter and Reformation Day.


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains as they minister to lostness. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains, giving of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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 (missionaries.namb.net/projects/full/chaplaincy).
