Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."  Before I was born the devil was trying to destroy me but I am thankful that my dad was a saved man who loved the Lord and believed in the sanctity of life! My mother was having difficulty with her pregnancy and the doctor suggested to my dad that only one would live and that he wanted permission to terminate me so that my mother would be able to live.  Glory be to God that my dad told the doctor that he needed both to live and would not give up on either one of us.  Needless to say I lived and so did my mother. I was raised in a home where God was reverenced but yet I did not give heed to the gospel till I was 26 yrs old. On a cold February night(Feb 4, 1994) on a trip back from Tallahassee Fl., under Holy Spirit conviction I finally submitted to the Lord and was gloriously saved!  Hell has no hold on me! The Lord called me to preach in 1995 and the Lord Jesus Christ has used me in a unique way.  He has used me to plant 3 churches and help plant 2 others for a total of 5. Plus be a help to many others that were struggling and was able to use me to help keep their ministry alive.  During the years I have been blessed to see many come to Christ, many Christians restored and have had several men called to preach under the ministry in which the Lord has called me! Satan has fought me all along the way but God's grace is sufficient. My beautiful wife Paula is a great help to me in the ministry. Paula is a converted Catholic and has a sweet spirit and a serving heart. The Lord is using her to be a blessing to the ladies where we minister.  Psalms 30:12 "To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever."
