Greetings in the Lord Jesus,
I am the Lead Pastor and if you are considering Farm Loop as your church home you probably want to know a little about me and my family.
I am a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary Class of 1978. I began ministry at the age of 21.
Shirley and I have been serving as the pastoral family of Farm Loop for twenty-two years. We have also served as missionaries in China, India, Tanzania, and the Philippines.
Our goal in ministry is to train and release believers into ministry. We base this philosophy and goal on Ephesians 4:12 where pastors are directed to train up the saints for the work of the ministry.
Farm Loop ministries are led by the everyday people in our congregation. Shirley and I enjoy watching churches grow and enabling people to share in the ministry. It does not always look like we imagine but usually better as our folks release their gifts and creativity.
As Head Pastor I have several key priorities:
- Preach and teach in a way to reach men. Our congregation is 50% male and 50% female.
- All teaching is from the Bible
- Families are important
- All people are valuable to God so all people are valuable to me.
May you be blessed and may you be a blessing as you follow Jesus Christ.
