I was called to be a minister of God's Word as a teenager at Lake James Christian Camp in Indiana and entered Cincinnati Bible Collage and Seminary after high school I had my first pastorate at age 18. Through the years I have earned two Masters and two Doctorate degrees and also became a Board Certified Chaplain. I have had many pastorates , been  a missionary in Zimbabwe ( then Rhodesia) for four years; served as interim minister while being a hospital chaplain for over 50 years. I have also taught psychology and counseling at Florida Christian Collage (now Johnson University )


  My wife Mitzi and I were called to minister at Southwwest Christian Church in Ocala in November of 2014 after having completed five years at First Christian Church in Sun City Center, Florida. Mitzi is a retired Nurse Supervisor; a good student of the Bible and my partner in ministry. We have grown to love this congregation and we are blessed by their growth in number and in knowledge and 

love of our Lord.

We invite you to join us in worshiping the Lord. You will find us to be a friendly congregation with a desire to be the people that God has called 

us to be. 

We  look forward to meeting and 

getting to know you.
