I have a doctoral degree in church administration. I have served as the senior pastor of three congregations, and most recently served as the Vice President for Campus Education and the Director of the Christian Educational Ministries Program at Nazarene Bible College. Since leaving that position, I have been serving as a corporate chaplain for Marketplace Ministries and as a ministry coach for churches in the areas of leadership, administration, and discipleship ministries. 

My wife, Marcia, and I have been married to each other for forty-two years.
