I have lived a number of places in my life, mostly in Texas and Oklahoma. I began my career as a teacher with Special Needs Children but soon felt God’s call to ministry in a church setting. I left Texas and attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, graduating with my MDiv in 1983. I have served 4 PCUSA churches in California, Louisiana and Texas. After completing my DMin (also at Fuller) I started helping teach the first DMin course, Exploring the Contours of Ministry, and have continued that since 2011. I also teach a class or 2 a year at Fuller Texas in Houston, either face to face or the hybrid. I love both teaching and pastoring and hope to continue to serve Christ in both ways.
