I was raised in the small, county seat town of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma and by God’s grace and the witness of Christian parents, I gave my life to Christ at an early age. I surrendered to God’s call to preach while in high school and went on to Oklahoma Baptist University and graduated in 1972. While in college, I met the girl I had only dreamed about and we married in 1973. I received my BA from OBU and my Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The three children we raised went on to marry and bless us with eight grandchildren. My family has been and will always be my first priority in ministry.

After spending about fourteen years in local church youth ministry in Oklahoma, Florida, New Mexico and Texas, I returned to Oklahoma and began my pastoral ministry. Judy and I have served First Baptist Church, Durant since 1999. My hobbies include a little tennis and golf and adventures with Judy.

My first calling in vocational ministry is to “preach the word”. I love to do that and all the ministry that results from it. My prayer is that I will be faithful to “speak the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15). I want to engage God’s people in personal and corporate worship; to disciple them into a state of spiritual wellness; and to witness to God’s marvelous grace and gospel from here to the nations. That forms the pillars of our purpose – Worship, Wellness, Witness.
