He played basketball for and graduated from Washington Bible College and later, Capital Bible Seminary in Lanham, MD.

In that capacity he also coached men's soccer and basketball.
While at the college he met and eventually married Connie Hughes. They have been married for 38 years and have 6 children, three boys and three girls. Four are married and have provided 10 grandchildren.

What does God think about religion? Jesus consistently preached against religious practices and challenged religious teachers. He taught that doing good deeds to gain God’s approval was wrong and may actually hinder us in the pursuit of God. If God doesn't want religion how can you please Him? This book shows how the Beatitudes help make one sure he/she is pleasing God and prepared for heaven.
