He attended Criswell College back in Dallas in the 70’s and holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Religious Studies and a D.D. from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. His ordination is with the Evangelical Free Church of America.
Most recently he received the “Pastor of the Year” award from the National Coalition of Ministries to Men at their Reload Convention in Little Rock, AR, and is the author of “Are You in the Game or in the Way: A Question for Pastors and Men’s Ministry Leaders” (Redemption Press 2017).
