Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, my family moved to Arlington, Texas where I grew up and graduated from High School. After graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington I entered Dallas Theological Seminary, married and graduated in 1973. My wife, Paula, and I moved to North Bend, Oregon then to Gulfport, Mississippi. There I pastored a small independent Bible church for many years. In 1989 we moved to the Kansas City area and taught in a small Christian school until 2004 when I started working for Cabela’s.
I continue to minister in my local church, Calvary Bible Church, in Bonner Springs, Kansas teaching Sunday School and occasionally filling in for our pastor and I maintain a Bible Study Website. My hobbies include herpetology (I have a ball python named Fuzzy!), photography and gardening.
