My own ministry is intimately connected and interwoven into my full-time employment in the recreation therapy department of a veterans nursing home, in Fitzsimons, Aurora – Colorado, over the past fifteen years. Mostly, it is a commitment on my part to act as a spiritual resource for the veterans – they know that they can rely on me to be there for them on a religious dimension. In addition, I provide religious education classes, meditation and Bible study groups. Over a period of three years I organize and present a regular, weekly one hour Sunday Service for between 15 to 20 residents (this included composing and writing a suitable sermon based on appropriate scriptural readings – much in the tradition of the Anglican/Episcopal Church). Since the outbreak of the Covid 19 virus, and the restrictions and ban on group meetings – to a large degree I have maintained contact with my congregation, but limited. My spiritual resources are newsletters delivered to my residents on an individual basis. I published a lot of my sermons online, and can be found at: Agape Universal Ministry:
In terms of belonging to another ministry - I am a member of the Order of St. Isadore of Seville. This is an online ministry that promotes the traditional codes of Christian chivalry, celebrates the beginning of Christs’ third millennium, and encourages safe and wholesome use of the internet. It supports and encourages a consecrated, Christ-focused, disciplined lifestyle. I am currently in the process of creating an official policy for the Order, that will cover internet safety for kids, reliable security advice for adults, and ways in which we might be able to contribute to cyber security and national defense. The Order can be found at:
One of my main immediate, short-term plans for the future is to develop my ministry into an ‘internet church’ with perhaps a wider focus, rather than just veterans. I would also like to position myself into religious services for other nursing homes – I know that residents of such homes and facilities are lacking in this respect.
I was ordained by ‘World Christianship Ministries’ in 2002, under the Rev. D. E. McElroy. This wasn’t a traditional ordination track – it is one of a number of internet ordination churches, though I believe it (WCM) serious and proceeds with genuinely good Christian intentions.
