PhD Leadership, Andrews University


After 25 years of pastoral ministry, I served the churches of Georgia-Cumberland as the evangelism coordinator for five years. I began my ministry in the Iowa-Missouri Conference in 1980, serving there for 13 years. We moved to the Georgia-Cumberland Conference in 1993.

I graduated from Southern Adventist University in 1980 with a BA in Theology and a minor in Biblical Languages. In 2000 I received an MA in Religion from Southern with emphasis in homiletics and church growth. In May of 2009 I graduated with a PhD in Leadership from Andrews University.

Nancy and I have been married for over 33 years. Nancy enjoys working at a pediatric dentist office as a registered dental hygienist. We have two sons. Matthew is a firefighter for Cobb County, Georgia, and is married to Heather. Eric is a firefighter for the city of Riverdale, Georgia, and is married to Melody. They have a daughter named Chrissy.

We enjoy spending time at the beach, reading, and visiting historical sites. The boys and I also like to go backpacking and camping.
