Of top priority, of course, is my relationship with God. I love my wife, Bonnie, and the 9 children that God has blessed us with, dearly. I also, have a consuming passion for music. I sing, play guitar, bass and enjoy a variety of musical styles, especially Praise & Worship.
I have a total of 16 years in pastoral ministry experience and evangelistic and concert experience during, and interspersed in between all other years. Over 40 plus years in ministry, altogether.
I have experience in leading praise and worship as worship leader and conducted Praise & Worship seminars for various denominations and organizations. I led worship for the old Cheraw Pentecostal Holiness Church, which is now Cheraw Family Worship Center.
I have an extensive background in Christian music, spanning over 40 (started as a teenager) years and 7 recordings and sat in as a guest musician on sessions for other artists. I am often sought out by other churches and ministries to sit in as bassist with their praise bands and orchestras for various worship and musical productions.
I was a recording artist with Mark V Records, HeartLook label, from 1995 - 2000 with 2 albums recorded with them, one of which I co-produced.
God has blessed me to travel over the country proclaiming and singing His Word. I have been nominated by the Country Gospel Music Association for "Male Vocalist of the Year", "Entertainer of the Year", "Songwriter of the Year" for four consecutive years and was nominated for "Shepherd of the Year".
Most importantly, I can tell you that I know, first hand, about the wonderful, merciful, loving grace of God! I simply want to let people everywhere know that God really loves them and He is concerned about their lives. He has done great things!
I try to look for the best in people and maintain a healthy positive attitude even through the most adverse situations. I endeavor to keep my spiritual sensitivity very keen and listen carefully to what the Spirit of God is saying.
My desire is to walk more and more in God's wisdom. As the book of James 1:19 says, "...let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:"
I have received recommendations from former governor of South Carolina, David Beasley, LaVerne Tripp of T.B.N. as well as many others, and I am thankful to the Lord for allowing me to meet and become friends with some of His greatest servants. It is my desire ultimately, to walk pleasing to the Lord, be at peace with all people and ultimately, to fulfill God's destiny for my life and His Kingdom.
