ON STAFF SINCE 2004
I grew up in East Texas. In 1985 I moved to Idaho to become a Hunting Guide and ended up guiding Whitewater Rafting trips as well. I was blessed by God to be raised in a Christian home providing a Christian background. But it wasn’t until 2000 that I truly submitted to the Lord and subsequently entered full time ministry.
Angela and I were married in 1996 and attended church yet lived as the world the rest of the week. I watched as the Holy Spirit began working in Angela’s heart and she began reading her Bible and soon the Spirit convicted me to do the same. I had broken enough promises to God over the years so I simply prayed, “Lord, please put it on my mind to read Your Word when I wake.” From that day forth, God has been faithful to remind me each and every morning to read His Word.
I began reading in Matthew, some mornings only a few verses and other mornings a few chapters. It was at Revelation 3:15 & 16 that I had to face what my life had become in the eyes of God; neither hot nor cold and that I deserved to be “spewed from Jesus’ mouth.” I saw my sin for what it was, an offense to a Holy and Righteous God. Right there and then I repented and put my trust in Christ (Acts 20:21). “Godly sorrow worketh repentance.” I have become a new creature (II Corinthians 5:17) in Christ, Having put my hand to the plow (Luke 9:62) I don’t look back. God’s commandments are not grievous. (I John 5:3) I hunger for His Word and try to respond quickly to sin in repentance. Christ and my relationship with Him are precious to me.
God blessed me with a wonderful family, my wife Angela, and children, Dirk, and Bailey. We have been on staff with Open Air Campaigners since 2004, as a full time evangelist and missionaries to Baltimore, Maryland from 2005 through 2008, as Directors of the ALACCA Bible Camp in North Central Idaho since the spring of 2008, and now God is leading us to open a new OAC branch in the Spokane, Washington/Coeur d’Alene, Idaho area.
Our hearts desire is to be on mission for God to play our part in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) and the perfecting of the saints (Ephesians 4: 11 & 12) for the work of the ministry for the edifying of the Body of Christ.
