A pastor at heart . . . these days I'm involved with encouraging the raising up of more shepherds to grow th flock of God. Through the years - 7 years as an evangelist, becoming pastor of a one year old church, later stepping in to pastor a church over 30 years old and now to serve as General Director of North American Missions for the past several years. Married to Norma, the sweet lady who balances me and still catches my attention! Two wonderful sons - Lane and wife Shelley are preparing to go to Atlanta to start a church; Chris works as a leasing agent in Springfield, Missouri. Two "holy children" - (grandsons) Kayden and Wyatt, both born in 2006. If a measure of a man is the things he allows to interrupt him then being "Big Daddee" is one of life's favorite things. Eighteen books written . . . and a goal to write one additional book each year. Observation: writing helps make one think more clearly!
