God saved me when I was only six years old. He saved my soul and He saved my life. He saved me from a life of wickedness by allowing me to hear and understand the Gospel at such a young age. Even at six years old I realized my need for the Saviour to forgive me and take away my sin. I'm thankful that the Gospel is so simple that even children can understand that Jesus died for their sins and through Him they can have forgiveness.
Though the Grace of God I was raised in a Christian home by godly parents who loved the Lord and took me to church. My parents also realized the importance of Christian education and enrolled me in Tabernacle Christian School, from which I graduated in 1979. This is where I met my wife Jan, and we were married in 1986. We have two wonderful children who are now attending Tabernacle Christian School.
My ambition and goal was to have a career in Gospel Music. For 15 years I worked in the Gospel Music recording industry with many prominent Gospel Music Ministries, helping with their recordings and promotions. I had no idea that God was preparing a ministry for me at Tabernacle Baptist Church.
In 1992 my pastor, Dr. Harold B. Sightler, asked if I would prayerfully consider becoming the Music Director at Tabernacle Baptist Church. I accepted and that became one of the greatest honors and privileges that I ever had - to serve and assist Dr. Sightler in the latter years of his ministry. I continued my position as Minister of Music under our current pastor, Dr. Melvin Aiken, for 13 years, and directed Tabernacle Christian School as Principal/Administrator.
In the fall of 2003, missionary Dr. Don Wardlaw came to my office wanting me to help encourage our high school and college students about missionary work and Bible Distribution. I'll never forget that day! Dr. Wardlaw's poor health prevented him from taking Bibles into the Asian countries he was serving, and he was looking for someone to take his place. God smote my heart that day concerning Bible Distribution. I made my first trip into Asia in March of 2004 and took nearly 8000 copies of God's Word into areas of great spiritual need.
On May 29, 2005, my family and I presented ourselves to Tabernacle Baptist Church as Missionaries in the Bible Distribution Ministry. Please pray that God will use us as we obey the Great Commission.
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
