Reaching home and the world for Jesus Christ
My primary ministry is as a teacher in the Body of Christ. As such I see my mission summarized the the words of Paul in Ephesians 4:11-12:
And He gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry, ...
Paul indicates in this passage that these ministries are actually people specifically gifted by Jesus and given to the Body of Christ.
I first began walking in the gifting in 1974 after receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. It was also about the same time that I was exposed to Creation Science for the first time. That began a time of intensive study on creation.
In July 1979 I resigned from the National Bureau of Standards (currently NIST) and moved with my family to a Port Republic, Virginia, which is just east of Harrisonburg.
For several years prior to that time I had been working with Bruce Mitchell and a retreat ministry he operated in Mt. Crawford called The Farm. With my arrival we launched a new teaching ministry which we called The Christian Teaching Center. It was there that I began to hone my gift and ministry as a teacher.
My teaching was primarily centered around my background as a scientist and study of creation. I developed and taught a
seminar on Scientific Creation, and even participated in a Creation/Evolution debate with a geology professor from James Madison
In recent years cross-cultural ministry has been a major emphasis for me. I made my first ministry trip,
which was to southern Spain in July 1998 as part of a team from Cornerstone Church of Rockingham County,
and that trip profoundly impacted both my life and ministry. (I have posted a copy of my journal from that trip
The biggest part of my vision for now and the future is to help prepare the Body of Christ for His
return. I have often declared that I will go anywhere to teach any number of people what I know about Christ's return without
asking anything in return.
