I was born and raised in Hopewell Virginia. In 1972, I married my high school sweetheart, Rosemary Nichols, and we now have two grown children. I was employed by Hercules Inc. for sixteen years before receiving the call into ministry. At that point in my life, full time college was not an option; however, I was able to receive my education through the Wesleyan Church Course of Study Program. I was ordained in the Wesleyan Church in 1991. I began to pastor the Oak Grove Wesleyan Church in Montpelier, Virginia in 1985. My desire is to see all men and women, boys and girls discover the love of Jesus and have their lives transformed by God into something beautiful. This transformation happened in my life when I was just a teenager. Just as the chorus says, “The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows; the more that I love Him, the more love He bestows: Each day is like Heaven, my heart over flows; the longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows.” The Christian experience is not just a cliche. It is a relationship in which we grow and find joy and peace by allowing Jesus to be the focal point of our lives. This is the experience that I encourage all under my ministry to have and enjoy.
