My ministry credentials are similar to the first disciples and the prophet Amos.
Acts 4:13 "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and
perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled and they took note that they had been with Jesus."
Amos 7:14 "I was no prophet, nor was I a son of a prophet; but I
was a sheepherder and a tender of sycamore fruit. Then the LORD took me as I followed the flock and the LORD said to
me, "Go, prophesy to my people Israel."
My first Christian ministry calling from God was to teach elementary age Sunday
School, which over the past thirty five years He continues to expand.
Since breaking me into the ministry, God has called and allowed me to privilege
to serve in a multitude of ministry capacities, including: Youth Department Director at the Shiloh Temple International
Ministries church in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, a drummer on their Praise and Worship Team,
and Prison Ministry to Men through Shiloh Temple International Ministries, which I have participated in for the
past several years and have found very rewarding.
God's calling on my life has also included ministering in the capacities of
teacher, confirmation teacher, church council member, chair of the Life & Growth Committee, chair of the Visitation Team,
chair of the Youth Overseer Committee, interim Youth Department Director, member of the Long Range Planning Committee, member
of the Constitution Committee, member of two Pastoral Call Committees, youth softball coach, manager and player on the men’s
softball and volleyball teams, usher, youth chaperone for mission trips and retreats, youth fundraiser events worker, as well
as helping with a variety of other needs as they arose at Peace Lutheran Church in Coon Rapids, Minnesota.
The LORD expanded my ministry territory in 2014 by sending me to visit
Church of God Ministries church and Children's Orphanage in Eluru, India to encourage them and to investigate their needs
and ministry. My purpose in their lives and ministry is still being revealed by the LORD, and I don't know the full
extent of my connection with their ministry yet, which is pastored by Reverend Mudili Sambabu. This was a culmination
of several years of email correspondence back and forth as a result of Reverend Sambabu contacting after viewing my website.
The Lord also blessed me with a position within Cummins Power Generation in
the engineering area where I worked as an engineering acoustician from 1978 through June 30, 2016 when I retired. Through
that position He provided me many opportunities to minister to many fellow employees over the years, and provided opportunities
and training that have honed talents and abilities to help me be a more effective minister of the Gospel of Jesus
The materials I offer are the result of God's
call on my life to share His Word in an easy-reading format that does not overwhelm the reader. The Lord has given me
an ability to take complicated matters and explain them in simple terms - getting to the heart of the matter. I have
heard many Christians say they find the Bible intimidating, overwhelming, and difficult to understand. My books and
Bible studies remove those barriers.
materials I offer purpose to help you incorporate God’s truths into your daily life to bring you to a maturity in faith
that will allow you to live each moment in peace and contentment – a worry-free life through the mercy and grace of
the Lord Jesus Christ as you come to understand His truths.
My calling is to grow peoples' knowledge of and relationship with Jesus. It is
only through relationship building and increased knowledge of His perfect love in our heart - the perfect love that casts
out all fear - that we are empowered to live a content life with inner peace.
I love you all in the matchless name of Jesus - the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I pray that
God will bless you in every way to overflowing, and that you will use that overflow to bless the lives of others through supporting
the spreading of the gospel and doing good to others.
