Bio: I was raised in a Christian home, actually a home where my father was a pastor. I grew up in the church and was involved in the music ministry at an early age. I felt the Lord calling me into the music ministry in 1976. I graduated from Stetson University, Deland, Florida, with a Bachelor of Music Education in 1980 and received a Master Of Church Music from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas, in 1982. I have served churches as a Minister of Music/Senior Adults in Texas and Florida. I married my wife, Lawana, in 1972. We are really enjoying serving the Lord through Christ Independent Methodist Church. We began our ministry at CIMC in 2010. We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us and our church in the future.
