I was not raised in a Christian home. I had been taken to church a couple of times as a child by a relative and neighbor. I believed in right and wrong, God and the devil, the Bible and heaven and hell. I was introduced to Christ through two men working with me at my place of employment. I was working in a factory during the day and entertaining nite clubs singing and playing in a rock band in the evenings. (We got a recording contract and had a tour in the planning when my life changed). After watching their lifestyles and experiencing the Love of God through their words and example my wife and I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in my home two weeks later. My life began to change. My greatest desire was to tell others what I was experiencing. I did not know what was happening but I knew something was changing me. I knew I was different and so did everyone around me. I had to find a way to tell others what I had little or no knowledge of.
The passion to share Christ with others challenged me to seek educational opportunities as they were available. Through the years I have continued to do so. With God’s help and provision, I have obtained a Doctorate of Christian Theology, a Doctorate of Divinity, and a Doctorate of Ministry. My desire to know more about God’s plan for my life and continuing my discipleship journey is greater than ever before. I have found there is so much more to learn and experience.
During my ministry of almost half of a century my family and I have traveled as an evangelist, pastored churches, and planted a church where we ministered 33 years. The Lord revealed to me the need for discipleship training to help others fulfill the great commission. We resigned FFC, the church we had established. My son succeeded me in that pastorate. We are presently traveling full-time in a RV, ministering to churches and believers who have a desire to know more, grow more and to obey the command Jesus left for all believers. Go make disciples. MDTS is a mobile ministry to the local churches, small groups, one on one teaching and training in discipleship. It is on a donation basis as we want to minister wherever God leads us to go. It is our desire to be a blessing to pastors and believers and not to be a financial burden.
