I am the Pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church, a blogger, and a Seminary Professor.
I have worked in Christian Leadership for over 28 years, serving as Pastor of three churches in Texas and Kentucky. For the past 16 years I have been the Senior Pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church, Owensboro, Kentucky.
In addition to serving as a Pastor and blogging, I am also an Assistant Professor of Evangelism for Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary in their online environments.
I earned my BA in Religious Studies and Speech Communication from Western Kentucky University and my Masters of Divinity and my Ph.D. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I am married to my beautiful wife Stefanie. We are the proud parents of 4 children, ranging from College age down to Grade School. My older three children are biological while my youngest son was adopted from Guatemala. We have found adoption to be an amazing adventure. We live in Owensboro, Kentucky.
My vision of helping people follow Jesus is birthed out of a personal, life changing experience. For years I did not believe in the existence of God. But in 1984 I was gripped with the conviction that God did exist and had a plan for my life. After a period of searching, aided by a stolen Gideon placed Bible, I experienced a personal conversion that led to a life-long relationship with God, thru Jesus.
My hope is that I can help multitudes discover and live out the adventurous life God gives through Jesus Christ. This is my aim and the purpose for which I have created this site.
