Almost 40 years in ministry and more excited about Jesus and biblical truth than ever!
Interests: There are four profound changes that occur when someone embraces Jesus as his Savior. They receive the ability to hear what God says, the wisdom to prefer God's way of doing things, the power to change, and the capacity to serve others without regard for self. There is nothing more exciting to me than encouraging and celebrating this transformation in others.

Where God has expressly and clearly told us what to do, there is no place for contrary personal “convictions.” But concerning matters which the Bible does not address directly, Paul commands us to allow each person to form his own convictions. Continue reading
