I have served as Lead Pastor at First Assembly of God since February of 2020. I and my wife Mary came to Baxter Springs with 45 plus years of Pastoral ministry.  I came to faith in Jesus in June of 1968 and have served Him since that time.  Although I have not served with perfection, God has kept me faithful and moving forward.  One of the Scriptures I stand on is 2 Corinthians 1:21,22 (NLT), which says, "It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ.  He has commissioned us, and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us."

My ministry is driven by a deep love for God and His Word, and a deep love for people Whom Jesus came and died for.  I place the same value in people as God does, wanting to see them come to faith in Christ and grow in that faith.  I have served various capacities with the Assemblies of God Kansas Ministry Network include serving on the Board of Directors.  I have mentored men and boys throughout my ministry helping them to grow in Christ and into productive ministry.

Mary and I have been married since May 7, 1977 raising 4 children to love and serve Jesus.
