The Call to Ministry

“I became a Christian at the age of 40. Not long after, God led me to my life’s verse, Joshua 24:15 ‘choose this day whom you will serve, … But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.’

For me the emphasis is not really on the word ‘choose’ but on the word ‘serve’. If we choose but don’t serve, what really does that amount to? I am passionate about serving. I am humbled that God called me out of retirement to serve here at Riverland Hills.”

Favorite Book

The depth of the world created by the mind of JRR Tolkien in the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy as good and evil clashed. Only the Bible has a better author and a better story to tell.

Favorite Book of the Bible

Romans! I fought the Gospel because God’s ways didn’t make sense to me. Until I read Romans. Paul’s explanation of how God has been at work in the events of human history, from creation to the cross was transformational for me.
