Summary

Having spent 47 plus years in ministry, I have a broad knowledge and experience in church-related service and community relationships. My doctoral project was in creating mentoring programs that would be suited for any organization.

My spiritual gifts are in leadership, teaching, mentoring, and preaching. Having retired from full-time service, I am available for part-time or interim situations. I have also served as a consultant and would entertain opportunities for one-on-one interaction or group settings.
