I began a tract ministry and hospital-nursing home visitation ministry in 2005 in Oklahoma as I was winding down a long career in broadcasting. Having come from a preacher's family, I found it natural and the right thing to do by giving back to the community. In 2006 I realized that I needed to seek ordination though I had earned Masters degree in divinity from a methodist seminary...I never was ordained back in the '70s. At this point(2006) I no longer agreed with the progressive-acceptance that continues to grow in the united methodist church...that of not calling a sin a sin...the gay/same-sex movement. So I got an ordination from World Christianship Ministries...the easiest way to be licensed and ordained.
Forward to 2008, I met my now wife,Monica online and over the next few years we developed a lasting relationship leading to marriage. She's a native of Paraguay where I visited numerous times and also where we reside currently. Here I established a Bible study in our home among "expats" who are english speakers. The group has slowly grown to a level of maximum 25 or so lately. We're mostly baptists of several varieties. Our aspirations are to form a church soon; start a school; begin spanish services and to work with native pastors in the countryside.
In the near future, I will bring other pastors into our group as I am 66 now. The plan seems to have me concentrating on visitation and soul winning in the community as my spanish improves. At present the group is independent and self-sufficient not seeking financial assistance from outside.

The AOCI exists as a fellowship of Spirit-filled Evangelical and Jewish Clergy for the purpose of: 1) Exalting God 2) Fellowshiping and 3) Divine Networking.
We do NOT advise, nor do we seek, to bring members out of their current denomination or ministerial association. We seek to have a platform to UNITE the Clergy of the world in ways that can benefit not only the Kingdom of God, but also the men and women who faithfully serve their communities, one another, and God.
