He was the creator of a nationally syndicated radio spot series "Dad to Dad", and a keynote speaker at regional Promise Keepers events in Illinois and Indiana. He is the author of a book, "His Ultimate Intention"
Philosophy of Ministry: God loves people.
John 3:16 says it best . . . When we are truly "born again", the Holy Spirit fills us in order to help us desire holiness of heart. God's ultimate intention is that we grow as sons and daughters of God to be like Jesus Christ (Eph.4:11-16). This means our lives will manifest the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22) in obedience to the Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16).
Key Verse: John 1:12 -- But to as many as received him, he gave the right to become children of God.
