I’m so glad that you’ve come to this website. Trying to tell someone who you are and what you’re about in a few paragraphs is like trying to fit this 46-year-old man into skinny jeans (it’s not gonna’ happen. Ha!) Life is more than lists of titles and accomplishments. It is the matter of the heart, where struggle and pain, joy and victory meet around one’s deepest desires. My two greatest longings are to be fully pleasing to the One who loved me and gave His life for me and to offer Him a natural and spiritual family that lives in the light of His love and makes it known to all. Jesus is my life, and I want to search Him out and honor Him with those closest to me.
I’m the proud husband of Rachel Jennifer-Joy, the most beautiful lady on the planet, and the proud father of our three sons—Samuel, Jonathan, and Joshua. Doing life with them and serving Jesus together truly is the joy of my life! Rachel and I are actually approaching our 25th wedding anniversary (insert clapping and loud cheers; we’re halfway to 50!) and celebrating the many years of fruitful ministry together. Back in 1999 we said yes to the Lord’s invitation to be part of the leadership at the International House of Prayer Missions Base in Kansas City (IHOPKC). Now 17 years later, we give thanks to God for His mighty hand in our lives!
