My wife Kit and I have been married for 29 years. We met and were married in Pinellas County Florida and relocated to Oviedo FL 21 years ago. We have three adult children (Aaron, Amanda & Leonard) and 5 grandchildren. We were foster parents for a number of years and adopted our youngest son (Leonard) from the foster care system.
We established a youth ministry program at the Crystal Beach Church in Crystal Beach, Florida where I served as the youth minister.
We started and lead The Celebrate Recovery program at River Run Church.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weakness, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
We found The Foundry Church 4-1/2 years ago and called it home.
I’m a Mason and Shriner. I serve as a Camel Herder for one of the units. Which means I care for Sir Gus Jr.
I have worked in the fire suppression engineering field for 30 plus year as a designer, project manager and division manager. I currently have a sprinkler sales position with a large international trade company.
In my leisure time, I enjoy fishing, boating, golf and hiking. I have a passion for football and have coached youth league football for 25 plus years.
My wife and I are deeply moved by the Spirit which we feel is growing in our church. We serve in numerous small groups. My wife Kit currently hosts a women’s group called “Encouragement and Coffee”. I have prayed daily for God’s direction in which way I can serve Him. Now is the time to put prayer into action. I have been called and I will serve Him through this church leadership role.
I Timothy 3
Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full[a] respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap
I left you in charge in Crete so you could complete what I left half-done. Appoint leaders in every town according to my instructions. As you select them, ask, “Is this man well-thought-of? Is he committed to his wife? Are his children believers? Do they respect him and stay out of trouble?” It’s important that a church leader, responsible for the affairs in God’s house, be looked up to—not pushy, not short-tempered, not a drunk, not a bully, not money-hungry. He must welcome people, be helpful, wise, fair, reverent, have a good grip on himself, and have a good grip on the Message, knowing how to use the truth to either spur people on in knowledge or stop them in their tracks if they oppose it.
