My wife, Theresa, and I are the parents of four and grandparents of ten and we thoroughly enjoy time with our family. I’m passionate about helping Christians really live like Christians, and have spent the last 25 years as a pastor, author, coach and teacher. I hold an M.S. degree from West Virginia State University and a Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary. In addition to my work as a pastor at Venture, I am also President of Living on the Edge (LOTE), an international teaching and discipleship ministry and served as a past-president of Walk Through the Bible. I’ve had the privilege of authoring 15 books and delivering God’s Word to more than a million people a week via radio and television outlets worldwide. 

 

 

WHAT I DO...

Teach from God’s Word and deliver weekend messages during worship services at Venture.
