My purpose in ministering the Gospel is to give hope and encouragement, build faith, and show love to win the lost,restore the wayward, backslider, or spiritually weak Christian, and perfect the body of Christ. I am limited but my God is not! What He does in my life is a confirmation and testimony of living hope to this constant fact.
I was raised by my evangelist parents and always had a heart for God. My parents divorced when I was nine and my father was rarely seen afterward. That abandonment turned me into a rebellious teen. At the age of seventeen, I suffered in a near fatal car accident. I rededicated my life to God when I hit rock bottom. Then I began reading my Bible, praying, and seeking God with all my heart. The Word of God became so alive to me and I began to read it about six to eight hours each day. I also would spend a half to a full hour each day worshipping God in music.
When I was eighteen years old, a pastor asked me to give my testimony in his Sunday evening service. I spoke for twenty minutes, without any difficulty, and the Spirit touched so many people with life changing results. The scriptures for every circumstance I spoke about instantly came to memory. That was particularly amazing considering that I suffered brain damage in the car accident . It was at that moment I knew this was my calling.
Since that time God has confirmed it repeatedly through people, events, His Word, and the work of His Spirit in my life. God has blessed me with the opportunity to minister in over thirty churches in Pennsylvania. I have also spoken internationally in Spain, Jamaica, and Canada. My face has been on tv and newspapers. My voice has been on radio. God had inspired me with over 20 songs of praise/worship and songs which minister biblical truth. I even recorded a cd featuring 11 of these songs entitled Everybody, Praise The Lord. God did all this in my life by age twenty.
At the age of twenty-two I had big plans to graduate from Asbury College with a degree in Bible/theology for ministry. I am currently licensed through Assemblies of God. Since then I have written over twenty more songs which minister common biblical lessons in powerful and greatly encouraging ways. I have ministered in numerous other churches and have authored my first book, The Remaining Factors: Seeking Eternal Treasures, which can been seen on http://www.authorhouse.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?BookId=SKU-000259443
