I was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Laurel, Maryland. I served in the United States Air Force for 20 years then retired. Then God led me to become a pastor. I was converted to Christ in the summer of 1966. I enjoy the company of my wife, children and grandchildren. I live with my three cats Taz.

Where Am I?

Things have been crazy around here. last week I had the flu. It was a good reminder of why I hate being sick. This coming Saturday, the day after tomorrow, I am moving to Springfield, Missouri to take up my new pastorate at Victory Baptist Church of Springfield. So, I have been packing up my house this week. Usually, I have people who do this for me and now I am having to do it for myself. Now I know I hate moving as much as I hate being sick.

I told my wife we aren't moving again, except under one condition. If I am at home one evening, perhaps reading over the latest Piper book or a treatise of Jonathan Edwards, and I get a phone call, and one of the elders at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London England is on the line telling me they need a pastor and they want me to come right away ... I will move. But only under those circumstances.

Now it is back to work. I will blog again from the other end.

PRAYING FOR YOU. I found when I move, I can get rid of some stuff, I don't use.

We are really looking forward to your arrival. Please don't make any plans to move to London. I can't lead a church by myself, at least not yet.

Brother Jeff,

Not to worry, I won't leave you till you're fully prepared (my young padewon). I think I have a greater chance of being elected President than I do of pastoring the Tabernacle.

Brother Paul ... the prayers are much coveted and greatly appreciated.

Hi John,
My prayers are with you as you pastor your new church. I'm sure they will be blessed by you.
